I photographed flowers in different states of decay to make a statement about aging beauty. Today main stream media is filled with young skinny women and occasionally older women who are considered beautiful for their age. How come age and shape is even a factor when considering beauty? Beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, and ages. Beauty cannot be standardized even though society tries to do just that. Everybody is beautiful in their own unique way it’s what makes us individuals.
I shot my flower pictures with a 4x5 view camera, scanned them, and later imported them into Lightroom cc and split toned them.
