Inspired by Lazlo Maholy-Nagy's photograms and Anna Atkin's solar prints of ferns, this ongoing series of images allows the spring sunlight to warp and transform these temporary assemblages of painted marks and plants. "Spring ephemerals" are plants that emerge right after the snow melts and disappear quickly. All of these images were created between mid-May and late-June with plants that grow in the urban prairie.
