DESPITE THE PAIN - A 5 YEAR JOURNEY OF MOVING PHOTOGRAPHY - To take the full 5 year journey start at the beginning by clicking on NEW PAPILLON and read the info then continue with each year forward.
The creation series is the last part in this 5 year collection.
CREATION: Muddy Stream Water Mountains and Bushes Trees and Dirt The final Creation series leaves abstraction and enters our world of creation to show the offspring phase in the evolution of the Monarch and the universe.
This series uses a single image from a mountain, a patch of dirt or small section of a muddy stream and with a stitching technique, duplicates it.
The natural replication process that cells undergo to create a human or butterfly is the result of 14 billion years of evolution. Similarly, one frame taken of twigs on the ground can be seen as fragments of a greater puzzle that when replicated become defined structures of great complexity and order.
In the Creation series, no digital photography, kaleidoscopic methods or microscopic imaging is used to create the patterns seen and the same image is replicated.
Simple processing techniques are implemented like dodging and burning in order to accent the intricate symmetry, geometry and archetypal components that already exist in the original nature captured.
