Catherine Cloran Regarding Beauty


Conny Dietzschold Gallery Head On Photo Festival 2011

The single overarching theme in my work has always been about nature and human connection to nature. In 2011 I was exploring ideas of ‘beauty and decay’, and ‘beauty and kitsch’. My mother had just died and so I decided to allow myself the pleasure of photographing flowers for a while. The ‘skin’ of the petals reminded me of the transparent skin on the back of her very old hands.
