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 our own impermanence and 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.
