As you know, Fine Art Photography is very much part of my work as a photographer. You will probably have seen a body of work called Dahlia Days a collection of C type images in limited editions. I generally give an artist's statement to give viewers an insight into the background of a body of work. This is different and something very close to my heart, so I thought I would let Vicki write a few words instead. A first for me.
My husband, created my dahlia bed as a tribute to our beautiful son, Noah, who we lost when he was two days old. The dahlias are grown with love and a quiet dedication.
And from May to October, we fill the house and Noah’s special place with beautiful dahlias. We also give them to friends, neighbours and strangers.
Each year, the dahlia bed is extended because the love does not fade. It grows.
A good friend told us that in the Victorian language of flowers, the dahlia is seen as a symbol of dignity, elegance and an everlasting bond.
And we grow them as a way to celebrate our bond with Noah and for people to say his name.
I feel privileged that Vicki and her husband have allowed me to celebrate Noah’s short life through my art photography. You will now know why I want to fill the world with this specially chosen C type print called Dahlia for Noah. Do please repost on social media to spread the word. All profits from this print will go to SANDS, a most worthy charity.
