Conservation Center Photography Show -- Rose, Amherst, New Hampshire 2000

Our garden in Amherst has many flowers that I use occasionally as subject matter for photography(see for example a previous post).  The image "Rose" was made in 2000 in situ and printed in the wet darkroom on silver gelatin paper. The delicate white pedals and high key gradations are in sharp contrast to the background of dark leaves and ground.  The rose floats above the background providing a glowing innocence although the form of the rose is somewhat irregular.
