Botanical Impressions & Abstracts

jo stephen nature photography

A gallery of impressionistic and abstract botanical images. These have been taken in the woods and fields around the village when I am out walking. I use intentional camera movement (ICM) and multiple exposures to create the effects seen in these pictues. Often I will combine the colours and textures in the landscape with macro images of the botanical subjects. These images are never planned, the ideas come to me whilst in the field in the company of the plants and are a product of my personal nature connection practice.

My botanical work has been recognised in the Abstract Views category of IGPOTY 12 and 15.
