Come, take a walk with me through Northeast Ohio to see what I see in the hidden gems of woodland waterways. These tributaries are the life force of Nature for wildlife and vegetation within the region. The MetroParks System of Cleveland and the Cuyahoga Valley Nation Park offer much in communing with Nature yet they are a vital resource in the sustainability of our environment.
FLOW is an on going meditative study of Water. We experience any natural element through our senses which develop perceptions of time and dimension. Water, is a living energy in constant movement. Its forms are ever changing never to happen exactly the same way again. Water is central to all living things. When we are attune to the energy or being-ness of Water, we are becoming aligned with living in the present moment... the Flow of the life force within ourselves and possibly all living things. Creating FLOW within the constructs of photography requires varying quantities of time and perspective to capture what Water is revealing in a current, reflection, and season. This photographic collection asks the viewer to begin participating in the everyday by actively expanding their energetic awareness and engaging the water around them to Move with the FLOW.
