This is a series I did almost unconsciously while my wife and I were discussing having a baby, many years ago. I had already been thinking about depicting the mystery of life (with common everyday objects in extreme close up) for many years but never went further. That is until one day when I happened to make an image of a common household object in a way that reminded me of the beginning of life.
Ultimately my wife and I decided not to have kids, but many years ago we were wrestling mightily with the idea. One day during this time, I began idly photographing objects from around the studio.
The first image startled me because not only was it interesting as an abstract close up, but more importantly it was clearly a metaphor for life - for the beginning of life. So, I kept making digital photographs (with a close up lens) of organic, everyday objects as metaphors for the beginning of life. These 35 images were made between 2010 and 2016 and are printed on Hahnemuhle paper with archival ink in one size. Edition of 5 + 2 artist proofs.
