Minimalist but dramatic nature photographs of intricate leaf skeletons

Fine art black and white photographs of intricate and textured leaves shot against simple black or white backgrounds

I've always admired nature's ability to perfectly create designs that are simultaneously functional and beautiful. Not only are natural designs structurally efficient and incredibly lovely, once their functional life is past, they even decay and fade away beautifully.

These decaying leaves are a perfect example. Photographed simply, against a dramatic black or white background, these macro images illustrate the gorgeous lacy intricacy of leaf skeletons.

What's truly incredible  even the most decayed of these leaves maintained enough strength and structural integrity to hold itself perfectly upright while being photographed.

Fine art black and white prints are available in sizes up to 40 x 60 inches.

These images are best seen large, allowing a viewer to really appreciate the textural landscape and ornate details of the leaf.
