Photograph - Manipulated, Enhanced Photograph
In 2004 I attended a humanities conference in Waikiki, Hawaii. While walking through Ala Moana Beach Park I saw the most amazing Banyan and Ficus trees with branches cascading to the ground in sinuous, intertwining columns that seemed to epitomize the very concept of complex organic growth. Many of these trees display a lifetime of scars - people's initials carved into them, branches that have been broken or severed - and yet they remain, silent and patient, bearing witness to the world as it unfolds around them. Waikiki was so beautiful that it seemed to me like a contemporary Garden of Eden. I took hundreds of photos, the best of which are presented here in the form of manipulated and enhanced images. As with many of the other works on this site, my goal is to create images that are lush with colour and rich with texture: works that have the same aesthetic sensibility as paintings. These images are NOT landscapes with trees in them; they are portraits of astonishing organisms, each with as much individuality and character as a person. I hope that these images inspire you with their beauty as much as they've inspired me.
