The series Falling Shadows explores the hidden mystery of nature. At first glance, the images seem to be traditional landscape photographs that use leaves, branches, bark, sky, earth, and water to record a place and time. However, at second glance each image hints at another dimension not usually seen. These dual dimensions—normal reality and something else—reveal a mystery in each scene that we suspect is always there but which we do not normally experience.
The various photographs that compose each image are taken with the final result in mind. Using photo editing software, multiple photographs are intentionally combined into one. During this process, random visual happenings can take place which enhance the final result. This visual serendipity is similar to what happens in some traditional printmaking methods. Unlike some altered photographs, these images are not meant to trick or fool the viewer; in fact, the changes are readily apparent.
Photographs in this series were taken in the Atlanta area and at Georgia and California coastal locations. The main “subject” of these images is the mysterious dimension of nature that continuously pours forth for us to enjoy.
