From the artist: "Every day in June at sunrise I took a bag of Hasselblad gear and a ladder and went around the corner to photograph Sunflowers. I wanted to photograph them as they changed and watch myself as I changed under a sustained effort. Things did change, every day bringing new growth in flowers and new ideas about how to photograph them. At a glance, they look like straight photography, but nearly every photograph is either a double exposure, used reflectors, shadows, or light modification in the image. Sunflowers are heliotropic—they turn toward the sun. I photographed them as the sun rose and shown directly on their faces."
