Botanic photography, monochrome.

A universal series on life, decline, and decay. Suggestive of the life cycle, Kesara depicts a moment in time when decay and life coexist. A rumination on time, in which time itself stands still. Capturing something in motion, this personal meditation on the life cycle is an expression of optimism: Kesara captures how decay gives way to life, and becomes whole again.

“A unique approach to capturing nature - is to capture what happens on the way out of that cycle. This poignant celebration of life is heavy with emotion and dynamism, despite its subject matter. The movement captured in the slow death of each leaf is evocative of the human form. The figures in this series are highly kinetic, like dancers contorting and writhing.”
