Flowers. . . become like messengers from another realm, like a bridge between the world of the physical form and the formless. — Echart Tolle
“I picked up a camera in 1998 with the intention of making landscape images full of drama with grand, far-off vistas in which I could hope to escape from childhood misery.
But what my images came to reveal is the power and intimacy of smaller landscapes, like that of a flower. I was increasingly drawn to the dreamy world of macro photography capturing the subtleties of petal, leaf and stem; I stopped chasing the horizon and began to search my own backyard in Midcoast Maine.
A flower is the plant’s highest expression of self, as well as a promise of a new generation, giving of its energy for creating seeds. I’m often in awe of the color or design when I’m making a flower image.”
Lisa Mossel Vietze’s images have appeared in many galleries and juried shows throughout Maine, including the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, North Light Gallery, Maine Coast Artists Gallery, and the Blum Gallery at College of the Atlantic. Her prints are held in collections throughout the country.
