Tulips and Anais Nin

I walk ahead of myself in perpetual expectancy of miracles.

—Anais Nin

Recently I came across some quotes from Anais Nin. I've wanted to edit my tulip images for a long time, and indeed found a note on my computer "Edit Tulips!" from last year. Sometimes it takes a while for things to blossom. I feel her timeless words go well with these images.

I hope you get lost in these "immagini" of the tulips as much as I got lost in photographing them. Literally, I climbed inside of them with my camera. Postscript: They are as I saw them, not manipulated in any way. :)

I looked with chameleon eyes upon the changing face of the world,

looked with anonymous vision upon my uncompleted self.

—Anais Nin

And... these tulip images, and others, will be available as limited edition prints made by me on recycled sugar cane photo paper that is just glorious. If you'd like to be contacted when they are up for sale, please email me at with "Tulip Prints" in the subject line.


  1. love the tupips... and the paper sounds SWEET! I wanted to comment on your love of the NEEM tree! NEEM is how I WEANED my little sweet Ella! I am grateful; it became her choice... with a little bit of help!

  2. Thank you Katie. Yes, the paper is sublime. And such a surprise. I love using it. Neem is the wonder tree of the world. I'm so glad you've found it and that it's helped you. Long live neem!
