Kaleidoscope in greyscale is a work which comes from The
Multiplied Forest portfolio. Trees are a quite common
subject and one of the most photographed in nature photography.
Having worked with multiple exposures technique for a while, I
needed a rest form color and those images full of greens, reds
and blues. Looking up to the trees top and rotating my 4x5
large format camera turned out to be a good way of getting
spectacular images of trunks, branches and colors scattered
all over the composition to create an impressionistic
photograph without including other elements. But because of
color distraction could get viewer out of the image, I decided
to create a whole new portfolio working only in black and
white. The result is a group of images which looks like
Buddhist Mandalas and show that there are many “realities”
beyond that our eyes can see.
