The Roses

The Roses series reveals the intricacies and diversity between twelve dried roses. Through the natural drying process the textures of the plant are made all the more apparent. The images were then captured with a scanner, a method often referred to as scanography. The flowers are presented against a simple neutral background, at a convenient scale, to help reveal details often unseen by the naked eye.

The portrait-like images have been named according to there unique human like characteristics, such as Cassidy, meaning curly haired, because of its furled petals, or Eldwyn, the wise adviser, due to its frail and weathered appearance. 

Based off the tradition of a bouquet of a dozen roses, the series can be viewed as a more connected cohesive whole, and the subtle diversity within a single species is made all the more apparent.
