about Laurie tennent…
The Birmingham, MI- based photographer produced a body of work comprised of botanically-based images printed on aluminum. These relatively large-scale photographs are captured with a large format camera that sits on a tripod, providing the artist maximum control over focus and exposure.
"Complexity of character, masculine and feminine, intimate yet bold, sensual yet strong. My photographs are an explorations of the dualities. By exaggerating the inner architecture of plant life, I offer the viewer a chance to at one become confronted by and immersed in nature."
