    Gold in Fine Art/Still Life

This project explores death and decay, highlighting that beauty can be found even in these uncomfortable places. The photos portray leaves from my garden that have fallen and decayed and -- yet -- retain an intrinsic beauty evidenced by their complex architecture. There is also a parallel to be drawn with the human condition: we all live and die and even after death we leave behind signs of our existence that can be appreciated perhaps from a different perspective.
