This summer will be the third year that I have photographed the “Roses” from the garden of our friends in Umbria. Finally, I think I have the right direction for processing these images. These roses are extraordinary, so much so that I think I began in such awe of them that I could not improve on anything except to document. Now, I think I can interpret their beauty and with this last attempt, I have had the most success. I love these flowers, they are so magnificent.
Our plan has always been to assemble them into a book of poetry and photography. This may be the year that we complete this project, though I don’t think I will ever grow tired of shooting them in the studio with the natural light that comes through my windows.
