28pp, A4 booklet
Full Colour Digital printing
Saddle Stitched

"A Burning Cloud is a series of images created 10 years apart in the same place, but edited together out of sequence. The first set was shot in my mid teens in my hometown of Poughkeepsie, New York, and the second while visiting my sister in the same city after having lived away for a number of years. My hope was to explore the process of visiting places associated with strong childhood memories after things have changed, and how this experience can be both underwhelming and melancholic at the same time."

Taking as a starting point the flower engravings of Jean-Baptiste Monnoyer from Le livre de toute sortes de fleurs d’après nature (The Book of All Kind of Flowers after Nature), the still life compositions are broken up with images of Paris allowing the book to flow into a dream-like narrative of the city."
