Opening Wednesday 5 April, 6.30-8pm
A personal project for over a year, this series is an expression of my appreciation for nature’s infinitely creative designs.
Botanicals is a collection of flowers I have come across around Victoria and I have shot in a simple studio-style environment. My intention was to shoot these flowers, approaching the framing and lighting as I would a portrait of a person, with the aim of trying to truly capture the ‘personality’ of the subject, drawing from my career as a wedding photographer. I chose plain, black backgrounds so as to remove the flower from it’s natural context, thereby highlighting its individual form and presence. For me, it is a true celebration of the original artist, designer & engineer - Nature.
