Herman’s photography discloses his pure feeling for the flora that he has encountered in the woods where it is part of his life. We may share his respect and love for Mother Nature from the style of which he chooses flora. It is a communion of abstraction and realism found through his camera. His passion of capturing the natural line elements of flora reveals his intrinsic quality of eastern art.
