2019 New Year Card
How a simple photo series to chronicle the year became a metaphor for the creative process.
The idea started with a back-lit image of a Japanese maple tree canopy glowing with fall colors in September, 2017. We decided to visit this tree every few months to capture the colors of the season and a year of budding, blooming, rising and falling. If I could stand in the same place each visit, I could document the tree’s stage at each season.
