jonathan SINGER: to see a photograph by jonathan singer is to transcend the medium and see the subject itself. the subject is so intriguing to our imaginations that we forget we are looking at a photograph and begin a deeper journey into the botanical world. just as the finest classical painters attempted to make their brushstrokes (hence their presence) invisible, jonathan photographs his subjects with clarity and humility, becoming an instrument serving a larger force. one can easily make the assumption that his subject is the rare, exotic hothouse flower, and as such would be easy to dismiss. but jonathan’s images don’t go away.
