Well, I asked for Terry's business card and proceeded to go to her web site. And this was the first image I saw.
I thought this piece was beautiful but then I got to reading about her technique and started to browse her galleries. It's not your everyday photography for sure. Terry creates fine art photography by using a micro image of a plant and combines it "with a more recognizable view of the plant subjects". WHAT! Yep!
I took this statement from Terry's gallery for this photograph:
The backlit May apple fruit is superimposed on a light micrograph of an epidermal peel from a May Apple flower. The four round shapes are pollen grains, a necessary prerequisite for the "apple."And this next photograph:
The Beech bud was shot in the snow in early spring. Unlike most Botanical Chords, the background is not a micrograph, but a shot of beech leaves floating in a puddle.
I could sit and cut and paste all of her photographs but you need to visit Terry's site and just take in each piece and read what plant(s) or micro image she used for the backgrounds.
I am so impressed and inspired by Terry's work!! I can see these pieces being turned in art quilts! Maybe we need to collaborate on a piece! That would be cool!
I asked Terry if I could do a blog post on her and she did give me approval...and I am so glad to be able to share her work with you!! ENJOY!!
