While researching for my book The Soul of Kazakhstan in the New York public library, I came across a letter Natalya Sedova, Leon Trotsky’s wife, wrote home while exiled in Almaty, Kazakhstan. She exclaimed about the beauty of a late spring snow blanketing the tulips. I remember thinking, what a remarkable image, I’d love to see that. As good fortune would have it, my apartment was across from where the Trotskys lived. On a spring day in April, I was treated to the same beautiful sight.

White Rose
White Rose, 40″ x 60″ photographic fine art print.

Mothers day a few years ago I bought a couple dozen white roses for my mother-in-law. I had gotten them from a wholesale supplier I had been using for flowers to photograph in my studio. The white roses were super fresh and flawless. As I looked closely at them appreciating their beauty I saw one that was pure and perfect, not a single blemish. So I took it into the studio and spent most of the day studying and photographing this perfect rose. The image above is of that rose.

A collector in New York city bought an eight foot wide print of this image had it matted and framed in white and placed as the single design element in their dining room.

Golden Wave

I moved down the beach and into the water so I could place this wave in a diagonal composition. I like the way the angle in combination with the contrast in light and the slow shutter speed enhanced the graceful sense of movement in this picture. There’s a softness and strength I find appealing in this image.
