Tropical leaves shot with a new experimental photography technique that I developed. Forests cover 30% of the earth's land. It is estimated that within 100 years there will be no rainforests left. One and a half acres of forest is cut down every second. I wanted to create a series of images that show the beauty of rainforest leaves, while at the same time giving a sense of fragility.
I shot these impossible shapes, inspired by the artist M.C.Escher. I wanted to balance the clean hard lines with something a little softer, so I used a pool of dark water below the shapes with a tranquil rippled surface. Set design was by Zena May Hendrick. My shots got published by New York based magazine Vaga. You can see the article here: http://vagazine.com/photography-still-life/Josh-Caudwell
