Palazzo Parisio | Naxxar, Malta | 26 August 2014

The magnificent walled gardens of the Palazzo Parisio, Naxxar, rank among the finest in Malta and are the only privately-owned gardens open to the public. Here you will find a diamond in the rough – the ideal spot to while away the hours in tranquil contemplation.

Classically Baroque in style, they are a charming mixture of Italian symmetry and Mediterranean colour and perfumes, with seasonal appeal all year round. From the twisting paths through the orange grove, to the flowering trees and unusual shrubs, this is a lush landscape waiting to be explored. Admire the many exotic species including jacaranda and oleander, the borders of jewel-like cinerarias and fragrant freesias, the tall spiky agapanthus, over 65 species of hibiscus, the vast collection of bougainvillea and the profusion of cascading geraniums.

Christiane Ramsay Scicluna, Baroness of Tabria, takes great interest in the upkeep of the gardens, and personally manages their development.

Transition | 2013 | Film

These are my final 7 images for the series.

Transition – The process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another.

The  work addresses the idea of remembrance, loss, memory, recollection, transition and death through the notion of the object. These objects were originally photographed at a relative’s home after she passed away. The images combine the Still Life with the Portrait whereby each relative of the deceased is seated alongside the ornaments and objects they inherited.

Comments about my work are very much appreciated.

Transition – The process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another.

The current work in progress addresses the idea of remembrance, loss, memory, recollection, transition and death through the notion of the object. These objects were originally photographed at a relative’s home after she passed away. It is a continuation of work which began in the Evanesce series. The difference with these images is that they combine the Still Life and the Portrait whereby each relative of the deceased is seated alongside the ornaments and objects they inherited.
