HERBARIUM 2010-


Without light and plants the world for me would be empty.
When I was studying biology, I came with all that theoretical knowledge to the realization that I was losing my ability to identify with Nature. This is what led me to study photography.

When I am working on the series Herbarium I want to gain access to the strength radiated from plants. It is an unfailing source of joy. When photographing plants I can dispence with their characteristics through the transparency and make the colours throb in the light. This brings me closer to the very essence of the profound nature of plants.

I have combined the scientific names of plants with an experiential style of photography.
This duality which reflects my earlier studies, also harks back to my childhood. At that time everyday Nature was filled with a wonderful beauty and the Latin names of the plants, which my father taught to his brood of children, were a breath of magic from a strange world.
