The River Taw (Last Quarter, Willow), photograph, 66 X 24 in, 1998. This image comes from Derges's Woman Thinking River series, in which Derges extends the idea of a darkroom into the ever-changing landscape of a running river. The rhythms of the patterns describe the fractal unity of the organic forms observed. (© Susan Derges) The River Taw (New Moon, Ivy), photograph, 66 X 24 in, 1998. In this work, one senses the interplay of chaotic elements and elements of control, the rejuvenation of a fractal spirit underlying the whirling vortices of water and cosmic forms.
