The Secret Life of Plants
San Francisco–based artist and photographer presents his latest collection of photograms. Each piece is made without a camera by placing objects directly onto the surface of a photographic paper, or some other photo-sensitive material, and then exposing them to light. This process normally means the final image is small--no bigger than the actual object. But Saunders has found a unique way to project the objects allowing for the unusual scale of his works.
"The Secret Life of Plants focuses on the essence of life by exploring the hidden dimensions of the plant world and man's connection to natural and man-made elements," Saunders says. "I strive to capture a moment of indescribable beauty and magic that exists within us."
