“Vesicle” (2020), digital photograph • “I find I’m drawn to moments in nature that would otherwise go unnoticed. Moments like this, where the low morning sun raked across a leaf filled with raindrops. With my macro lens, I was able to get close enough to reveal the intricate plumbing of the leaf’s veins, magnified further by the beads of water.”
