In November of 2012 I realized that I had something special in the works and I embraced it by creating the Delicates Series (the framed pieces). This is possibly the most personal and emotional series that I have created. The series is a reaction to being homesick during a long winter in Chicago and not being able to visit Puerto Rico. The images capture the tropical feeling that I remember from Puerto Rico and my childhood. All the images are from different conservation parks in the Chicago area. There are no plans to create any limited edition images in the Delicates Series but we print based on demand. All images captured before 2013 are taken with slide film using my 645 and 35 mm format cameras. I scanned all images and color-corrected them to match the original slides. All 2013 images have been captured with film and digital media. There is no post-manipulation; the prints reproduce the natural colors tones and saturation of the original images.
