DescriptionSnoqualmie Falls is a 268 ft (82 m) waterfall on the Snoqualmie River between Snoqualmie and Fall City, Washington, USA. It is one of Washington's most popular scenic attractions, but is perhaps best known internationally for its appearance in the cult television series Twin PeaksThe falls are central to the culture, beliefs, and spirituality of the Snoqualamie People, an ancient native american tribe. They are a traditional burial site, 'the place where First Woman and First Man were created by Moon the Transformer' and 'where prayers were carried up to the Creator by great mists that rise from the powerful flow.' The mists rising from the base of the waterfall are said to serve to connect Heaven and Earth.
John Gaffen, London Member Since June 2010 Artist Statement I am a professional photographer living in South East London. I am a member of a Tea Leaf Arts, a co-operative, artist led, gallery in Brockley, Lewisham. Subjects that interest me the most, include modern and classical architecture, nature, rural life, landscapes and seascapes. My art practice centres around nature and the passing of the seasons. I have been involved in a long-term project to record a photographic essay of Beckenham Place park, with an emphasis on different weather and light conditions encountered through the cycle of the seasons.
More recently I have become interested in using my photographs to create abstract works, based on surface textures and patterns of man-made objects and architectural details.
