About the Artist and this exhibition
The signature characteristic of Wayne Eastep’s photography is the ability to express the essence of a subject. His images go beyond representational pictures to touch the spirit of the subject, evoking an emotional response. In this exhibition he turns his attention to the exquisite design in nature and inherent beauty within flowers.
Eastep’s images are commissioned and collected internationally. They garner awards for books, documentary, and commercial assignments. His intention with each assignment is to go beyond the surface and look inside the subject. Photography for Wayne is both vocation and avocation. He is driven by a passion for the art of image making.

The sunflower an annual plant is native to the Americas. The flower petals within the sunflower’s cluster are always in a spiral pattern. Generally, each floret is oriented toward the next by approximately the golden angle, 137.5 degrees, producing a pattern of interconnecting spirals, where the number of left spirals and the number of right spirals are successive Fibonacci numbers. This pattern produces the most efficient packing of seeds within the flower head.
