Intrigued by the intrinsic beauty and design of ocean plants, I began collecting these specimens during my trips out to Nova Scotia over the past year. The process of drying and pressing the specimens so that they would lay flat was the initial step. I then selected the specimens based on how visually interesting I found them; staring at them for a while, the designs and textures allow the imagination to wander. I chose to photograph them using a studio setup and strobes; shooting with the intention of converting them to black and white. I am quite happy with how this series has come together so far and hope to add to it as my ocean plant specimen collection grows.
