Elephant Ears

Toned Gelatin Silver Photograms

I am obsessed with enormous and exotic Elephant Ear leaves. Each summer I plant these bulbs for ornamentation but also as a source of organic darkroom negatives. The photographs made from these "negatives" transform and at the same time retain the veracity of the original leaf. They portray an exquisite plant that embodies life and death.
