Pery Burge died in 2013, but she left behind a collection of beautiful photographs. Asked how she generated her photographs, Pery Burge said, “I place ink in water, which I photograph . . .” Trust me, there’s a lot more to it than that. In her Artist’s Statement, she said, “In 2011, I began to work with glass and light . . .” That series of photos she called “Lightscapes.” She also has a series called “Smoke.” There’s a series called “Lab Images,” one called “Bubblespreads,” and one containing her personal selections, and many more besides. Finally, you can see tons of her photos on her flickr photostream.

Her website, “Chronoscapes,” has a final journal entry entitled “Pery Burge,” written by a friend shortly after her death. In a sad irony, her own final entry was entitled “Looking Forward to 2013.”

Pery Burge died too young, but she left beauty behind.

    You know, I have gone back and got lost in her photos this morning. Such gorgeous dreaminess unseen if it were not for her art.
    How anyone give a thumbs down on this lovely introduction and tribute to this artist? Seriously?

      I know what you mean. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but someone has been putting a thumbs down on every post for the last while. I think I have a stalker.-) But on a tribute to someone deceased? That’s going a bit far, I think.

        I don’t understand it at all!

          They added another thumbs down yesterday morning. I don’t believe anyone would be that crass, so they must be clicking on the thumbs down without reading the posts. They’re probably not reading the comments either, and I certainly don’t expect them to contribute. We’ll see what happens after my next post – another innocuous one in the Cloud of the Day series.

          On a more cheerful note, it looks as if someone is now adding thumbs up to counteract my stalker’s thumbs down. Could this be the beginning of The Great Thumbs War?
