Janet Dwyer
Photography is my passion and livelihood.  My speciality is  photographing works of art for artists, galleries and museums.

In 2001, I began an exploration using a flatbed scanner as capture device, rather than a digital camera or film.  In a sense you could call this personal photographic series “photo scanography”- the scanner has a unique way of rendering objects with absolute clarity and depth that is different than camera based photography.  Within this series I am most interested in representing flowers as expressions of humanity, although sometimes other objects, bones, even body parts enter into the mix.
The human quality of a flower, its symbolic associations, sensual aspects, relationship within frame allow many emotions to be mirrored..
