I love the tone of this photograph. The image wasn’t retouched at all, this is how the camera

recorded the scene. I feel photographers are constantly retouching the hell out of

their images. Making the color  as accurate as possible, etc. I don’t subscribe to

that philosophy. I’m more concerned about the overall impression an image makes.

All of these images were taken at a friends parents house in Prague.

They love their house plants in the Czech Republic.

Project: Dying Tulips, Dead to Me.

+

I’ve been working on this project for a while and can’t seem to make it work.

Late last Spring I went to the Conservatory Gardens in Central Park to shoot the

dying tulips. The photograghs are adequate but they don’t have that spark I was hoping for.

I’ve contemplated printing them B/W as well as Gum Bichromate, even desaturating them

and adding grain. I’m open to suggestions, currently I’m at a loss.
