Botanical Polaroids: Artistic Flowers in Photos[1] author: Steve Harries (UK)
Description The ephemeral beauty of flowers has preoccupied artists for centuries. From vivid still lives by the Dutch masters, to the visceral large-scale paintings of flora by Georgia O’Keeffe, the genre is abloom with different interpretations.

One particularly compelling strand of this art form is scientific, rather than aesthetic, in motivation; for thousands of years flowers have been recorded in botanical journals for a purely didactic purpose.

It is these traditional journals that photographer Steve Harries took as the starting point for his series entitled “Studio Botanical”. Rather than mimicking them, however, he chose to upend their disciplined realism to present what he describes as “a personal, controlled and often distorted interpretation of the flower”.
