This series of stone photographs attempts to bridge two worlds. In a personally meaningful way, this body of work reflects the unification of two areas of deep interest, math and photography. It also shows my style of photographing which looks further and deeper into everyday surroundings to discover what singular perspectives may exist both in the object and in the space around the object.

The oblate stone embedded in the center is positioned to barely touch the exterior triangle in three locations. This egg shape is therefore inscribed within the triangle.

The single stone in the center of the image largely reminds me of a single plotted point.

The image Fractal Flatland was captured with the notion of fractals in mind. The image almost looks like an aerial shot from above, but is really on the same scale as the other images.
