This creative project deals with the photographic study of forms and patterns found in a natural state. The photo grapher has covered a wide geographical area including Logan and Cache Valley, Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake, Shoshone Falls in southern Idaho and City of Rocks, also in southern Idaho. The objective of this project was to reveal the visual strength of natural forms, or man-made forms acted upon by natural elements, in black-and-white images. Subjects were studied under all seasonal conditions in order to determine the best possible situation for enhancing the aesthetic qualities of the forms and patterns. I t was t he hope of the photographer to furcher enhance the power, boldness, or life-like character of the subjects through the technical manipulation made possible by the photographic process.
