Over the past two years, I have been returning over time and seasons to a particular Dogwood Tree in Cambridge, Massachusetts, for which I have created a series of studies. Trees bear witness to many transitory moments and continue their own tale through time. I want to express through images the beauty of these ephemeral moments for this singular tree. I want to show nature not solely for its beauty, but also for this transient quality. Trees are forever changing and desperately fragile. I strive to show their unfolding beauty and draw attention to this fragility and need for preservation.
