It starts with going out under the cover of darkness to snatch unsuspecting flowers growing around the neighborhood. Rarely knowing what to expect from a flower. Surprised by their colors or light, every one is a surprise! In the same way a tee-shirt blue glows under a black light, most organic material glows at least a little with UV stimulation and in all kinds of colors. To make the most of it, it takes working in the darkest environment and using a 365nm light so the camera can’t see the UV light.Any time the flowers are hit by sunlight, they’re letting off their own glow in response and it’s simply overwhelmed by the sunlight we can see. These photos capture something we always see, but never can observe.
