Over here in the UK, the March 2013 edition of Photography Monthly magazine has a five-page interview feature on “Petalum“, illustrated with many images from the from the thirty-print botanical series. In addition to the flowers, the article also includes a number of my personal favourite images from recent years.
Available, as they say, from all good UK bookshops and newsagents.

My new botanical series – “Petalum” – is currently on show until 4th March 2013 at the new “Fine & Contemporary” Gallery in Clare, Suffolk, UK.
The thirty monochrome prints feature a wide range of flowers and plants: from the beautifully sculpted Aqua Rose, to the crêpe paper petals of a field poppy, to the more exotic-looking Black Parrot tulip.
The series’ style hints at a more classical period in photography, but with a contemporary feel: capturing the fine detail inherent in each flower, but also the subtleties of light, shade, texture and tone.
The exhibition details:
1 February – 4 March 2013
Fine & Contemporary Gallery, Well Lane, Clare, Suffolk, UK CO10 8NH
Mon, Thurs, Fri, Sat 10.00am-5.00pm; Sunday 1.00pm – 5.00pm (Closed on Tuesday and Wednesday)

I’ve just completed two new botanical studies as part of the “Petalum” series – in full glorious colour! The field poppy and yellow iris flowers featured in black & white in the series have so much intrinsic texture and natural beauty that I felt that they should also been seen in colour.
They’re now part of the Petalum series online gallery and, as with the other studies, are available in a range of fine-art prints sizes. If you’d like to know more about the prints and prices, please let me know via my email. Thanks!
