Diane Rosenblum’s color infused photographs of gardens are drenched in a warm beauty of light and color. They invoke a state of being like that induced through meditation. They function like breezes clearing the air and leaving a quiet sense of elation.
Rosenblum's photographs draw on the ancient principles of the camera obscura (understood by Aristotle, Vermeer and early Chinese Scholars) to achieve their evocative delight. She marries this simple but powerful device, created by making a small hole in the exterior of a dark, enclosed box, with digital sensing technology. Experimenting constantly with a range of low-tech lenses and filters, Rosenblum has captured in her images the pleasure and sensation of being in a light suffused garden, wandering amidst its beautiful plants and flowers.
