About this book

To create his lumens, Burchfield placed plant cuttings directly onto aged black-and-white photographic paper that he secured to the deck of his Amazon boat. He then let the beautifully chaotic interaction of sunlight, rain, temperature, and each plant's inherent moisture and chemistry, among other factors, play out freely in prolonged exposures. The result is an astonishing array of images - from the starkly representational, to pure abstractions of color, shape, and form.
