Portraits with Flowers

Stacks Image 3142

" For as long as I can remember my closest companion was longing. A strong and wordless longing. Being creative is my way of exploring where it can take me. Bringing in a bunch of fresh flowers to replace the faded ones with, choosing the perfect fabric and pattern to create and sew exactly the dress that I want. Getting a new friend while reading a book, secrets, trusts, and friendship. Losing myself in music and movies, singing, playing the piano.

These are all ways for me to get closer to my searching. I find something. Like that time on the shore when I was a child and I found a perfect polished turquoise shard of glass among all the brown ones. And took it in my hand. I search for treasures.

One way for me to express myself is by taking photographs. When I take photographs I reach my inner child, the little girl I once was. While taking photographs I’m floating, totally present in time. Through my camera, I can turn an abstract feeling to a concrete picture and it’s like stopping time.

When light and shadow meet I can see a magical and timeless calm in which the content of life is written. In my pictures, I’m looking for just that. Light and shadow, the beauty of life. I believe that life’s beauty rests in the silky softness of a petal. The fragile and strong growth in the same branch. When light passes through a crack in a glass bowl thousands of prisms fills the air, the beauty in the incomplete." - Lisa Aguren
