Nonfiction. Photography. Art. UNDERSTORY: LUMEN PRINTS OF FLORIDA FLORA is a stirring effort to capture the beauty and habitat changes in central Florida's Pine Flatwoods environment, which was once the largest ecosystem in Florida. Unlike traditional photographers, Burchfield works in conjunction with nature, producing camera-less one-of-a-kind photographic images in the wilderness, using natural processes that date back to the origins of photography.
Working on a large scale, Burchfield was able to make images of whole trees and a 10' x 30' mural of a whole Pine Flatwoods ecosystem. The result is an amazing collection of images--from the representational to abstractions of color, shape, and form--which encapsulate the essence of the plants and echo the cycle of life.
