Julie Meridian collects leaves, twigs, bones and other commonplace specimens and preserves them in delicate frameworks constructed solely of natural light and shadow. Her images are poetic explorations of the transient and ephemeral nature of life, the inevitability of loss, and the transcendence of beauty.
