Fallen Leaves

There is something powerful in the symbolic value of the autumn leaf. It is a very effective representation of the passage of time, of the change of seasons, of being one step away from winter, of mortality. Leaves falling, dying and returning to the earth - food for the spring. I am interested in comparing and showing the different facets of the same object, highlighting the subtle differences between one leaf and the other.

When I walk through the streets, I have the impulse to look and want to photograph every fallen leaf I see. I stop in the realization of the impossible. Each fallen leaf has become an object that I wish to keep and collect. A sculpture made by nature.
