For anyone who paid attention, the summer of 2014 was a tough one. War, ebola, terrorism, plane crashes, Robin William’s death were all downers and often make us forget about all the remarkable beauty around us too. A simple reminder of the good stuff was the goal when I put this project together.
As soon as I returned to Canada in 2010 I had access to a space where I could set up a small studio and immediately began shooting my first flowers time lapses. Originally, I thought I’d put together a few, post them and walk away.
It turned into something much different and four years later Glorious is the result.
Over the years I shot hundreds of flowers failing to get anything decent from most of them, but slowly modifying the studio and learning how to shoot different flowers in different ways, improving my odds and finding my enjoyment of flowers turn into a near obsession.
I wanted music that would match the joy of the flowers and I wrote a Chilli Peppers/James Brown funk-type thing that I think works with the visuals.
Thanks for looking,
