Born in Judibana, Venezuela
in 1961, Ron van Dongen was raised in Warmond, The Netherlands. He
studied photography at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco
and currently resides in Portland Oregon. Ron van Dongen's
seductive black and white florals unearth floral secrets
and symbols of our alternately nurturing and perilous relationship
with nature. In simple arrangements and with masterful printing
techniques, van Dongen conjures visual sensations that can reflect
the struggles and confusions of everyday life in memorializing the
beautiful, the simple, the flower.
" Until we can comprehend the beguiling beauty of a single flower, we are
woefully unable to grasp the meaning and potential of life itself." -Virginia
