Last Chance to See - Lumen; the Fragility of Nature

Whilst walking the countryside, one idea that always occurs to me is the fragility of our native British flora and I've wondered about ways to express this simple but powerful idea because it speaks about much bigger concepts such as the husbandry of our planet.

One way is to use the sun itself and over the fleeting British summer of 2016, I decided to explore this idea in the form of sun (lumen) prints. The definition of the resulting images is exceptional, given that no camera was involved and the technique is able to capture a 3 dimensional image of the structure of a flower in a similar way to x-rays. These are some of the results.
