Artist's Description

One autumn, fire ravaged over 3,000 acres of mountain wilderness in northern California. Seemingly against all odds, the following spring brought rare wildflowers to the area. Known as “fire followers,” these flowers only grow in the aftermath of an exceptionally hot fire, occurring perhaps once or twice in a person’s lifetime. Where there had been desolation, there was now hope and joy – mirrored in this unique, if ephemeral beauty that could only come into existence because of destruction.

I made this photograph in the burn area during the second spring, as I returned to witness the landscape continuing to recover, and the wildflowers return. A single, pale Mariposa lily catches the light as it grows among the burned trees – a return to hope that is truly “beyond all words.”

I made this photograph on Kodak Tri-X black and white film using a Holga 120N plastic camera.
