Lumen; the Fragility of Nature

Whilst walking for the Photographic Walks portfolios, one idea that always occurs to me is the fragility of wild flowers and I've wondered about ways to express this simple but powerful idea because if 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 summers of 2015 and 2016 and the limited number of days of full sunshine 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.
