Beginning her photographic career in 1973, Janet worked within the industry in many different capacities; her freelance speciality is documenting works of art for artists, galleries and museums. Janetís scanography series uses organic forms, flowers, plants, found objects, even live insects to seek new relationships and surreal combinations. Dwyer is interested in the beauty of perfection and decay, revealing suggestive plant structures, and placement that might evoke a memory or gesture. She employs flatbed scanners for the unique way they record intimate details and other attributes like the movements of live elements. Inspired by the expressive power of nature, Janet observes its sensual aspects and human/animal metaphors or gestures, hoping to uncover the stories, emotions and magic within.
