Reverence: Portraits of Nature is an ongoing photography series. It highlights the details of the natural world, primarily from the mountains and wild that surround where I live in Colorado.
This work is a creative and spiritual practice of noticing the often overlooked. It is a practice of seeing with intention, of following intuition to discover the pieces I collect, carry with me and photograph in my studio.
In each of these pieces there is a silent story. How did they come to bear the textures and weathered marks, the hints of life and death? Ancient stones. Sun-bleached bones. Heartbeats stilled of a bird or deer, and whatever has come after — until the object lands in my hands and in front of my lens.
Reverence is the challenging work of noticing and revering the simple.
