After Bosch is from a series I made during the pandemic called "The Gleaner."  I have always found solace in nature - particularly during the pandemic.  During the lockdown, I went on long walks in the woods nearly every day.  I also continued to grow and tend my extensive gardens and to collect roadkill creatures and window strike birds (none from my windows, thankfully).  The images in the Gleaner reflect items collected from my garden, the woods and the roadside over the course of a day or two.  Once I collected a sufficient number of items, I arranged and photographed them in dense arrangements.  I think the density of the images reflects the claustrophobia of the pandemic and the over-the-top lushness of nature even as it rots and decays.  The title "After Bosch" refers to the Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch.  Bosch's paintings are really densely packed and simultaneously alluring and grotesque.
