Tree pods carry a quality of pregnancy, sensuality, and mystery.  They represent potential for growth and transformation

 

In this series, I evoke a visceral experience in the viewer through larger-than-life images of seed-pods from my travels around the world.  I have captured these pods on a white background that present them in full three-dimensional reality. Their scale accentuates their role in the survival life on our planet, and the connection between nature and humanity.
