Domesticated Landscapes

Spending years photographing reflections made me acutely aware of the play of light on various surfaces and the abstract images that interplay created.

Windows featured prominently in my reflections series. Conscious of windows, I also became conscious of plants and flowers framed by them. Almost all the people I know have some kind of plant growing in their homes. Like animals to a zoo, nature has been brought inside the landscape has been domesticated.

This seems especially true in urban environments where nature in the raw is harder to find. Urban dwellers need reminders of the natural world.

I began to focus on this juncture of the man-made and natural in domestic environments. I was interested in the combination of refracted and reflected light, the moderating surface of glass or screen and the framing. Nature, abstracted in this way, is tamed and made accessible.
