Conceptual Statement: This editorial submission was of particular interest to me, as I have always wanted to evoke the feeling of filigree as something lightweight and transparent. In photographing this filigree shell, with the horizon almost visible and the sun coming up behind it, I was attempting to summon a particular feeling of warmth. A feeling of warmth that one gets by witnessing a lovely sunrise, but one through the veil of a lace curtain. It also seemed fitting that “Creature Comforts” would be taken outside, since the snail always has its refuge and comforts of home in an outdoor setting.
