Sherman Bloom: Rocks and Flowers

Sherman Bloom is a retired physician and medical scientist. Throughout his early life and career he used photography as a way to explore his esthetic ideal (nature) and understand biological and disease processes. Upon retirement his focus moved to the esthetics of images.Bloom states, "My images reflect things I see all around me. Elements that attract me are composition, texture, story, content, and the unknown. By the unknown I mean the nature of something that is not self-evident. So part of my interest actually resides in the fact that by photographing something, and examining the image, I might be better able to understand it. He continues, The technical challenge of image capture and manipulation to produce the desired result is also a source of satisfaction. Basically, I strive to show what I think is the subject's essence, its essential beauty, its specialness."
