What better metaphor is there for nature than the changing of the seasons? And what better way is there to mark the passage of time than by the falling leaves of Autumn. When I think of growing old, I think of the fall leaves bursting out one last time in a blaze of color, and then drifting ever soslowly to the ground.
In this series, the fallen leaves are given a second lease on life. After reaching the ground, they rise again to accompany a young model, Ellen.Ellen starts the series standing,very much in a blaze of colors, and then finishes it quietly, lying prone on the ground, blanketed in fallen Autumn leaves.
