This series celebrates the extreme mutability of the single subject matter: one or more Angel’s Trumpets, or brugmansia/datura. I further exploit this Digital Age opportunity with occasional “surgical interventions.” Every image is one single frame, one long exposure, even when the subject moves. I am suggesting floral-based ideas as examples of the kind of 21st Century updates which could be made now to the literal historical fine art bouquet.
