Sculpture and David Bookbinder

It's a bitter cold and grey rainy day, so I'm seeking solace in the photographs of David J Bookbinder.

What I enjoy about Bookbinder's Flower Mandalas is the feeling of structure, of organized forms. The altered photos are not literal representations of a flower. Like a kalidescope, Bookbinder selects aspects and mirrors those to achieve a symmetry that fascinates the eyes.

David's current subjects include both street and nature photography, but his main interest, both as a photographer and a psychotherapist, is in transformation. Each image captured by the digital sensor can be the start of a sequence of related photographs or a set of transformations from one image into many.

Bookbinder is a photographer,psychotherapist, and writer living in Beverly, Massachusetts.
His website is here.

Looking at his work relaxes part of my mind while another part is awakened by the symmetry. It's the fascination of mirror on mirror...
