mike perry’s garden project

September 30, 2015


i am drawn to photographs i can feel. this is especially true of environments…photography that centers on an place i can close my eyes and place myself in; i love to imagine the feel, smells, colors…all of it. mike perry is that type of photographer that places me in his photos in the most vivid of ways.

all of his environments speak to me, however, his garden project speaks the loudest…

this space is a breath of fresh air.

is it odd that a space can also have me longing for recently departed summer…sigh…oh and then there is this yearning i suddenly have for really beautiful shoes…this house, i tell ya.
