DREAMING A GARDEN | 18 Images
During different seasons, I explored a three-acre organic garden in Sonoma County, California.  I chose to photograph at dawn.  At this time of day I looked into shadows of the unlit land to see plant growth begin when sunlight touched leaves.  I used infrared film which records plant activity.  Since this film is grainy and somewhat imprecise, the resulting images can appear as impressions rather than fixed and detailed certainties.  At dawn I felt I was a witness to the timeless and awesome phonomenum of growth.  The plants seemed like mysterious fellow-beings, each with its own history.
