How I see orchids …
The vision t0 create orchid portraits emerged from my appreciation for the “whole orchid.” So many photographs of orchids focus only on the flower. But orchids are not flowers: they are entire plants and living beings. These images are an invitation to connect more deeply with the many dimensions of orchids.
Orchids are an integral expression of my passion for photography and creating impressions of the essence of life. You can learn more about my approach to photography here.
