Back in 2015 I started capturing flowers underwater in different forms and shapes using various photographic techniques. Since the start of my career (many years ago) WATER is one the main components of my work. I’d like to see 'the underwater' as a space to create, like a canvas or a white piece of paper.

The Florilegium Series is my latest underwater project and is inspired by Dutch botanical drawings from the 17th Century. Bundled in book these drawings are also known as “Florilegium". Fascinated by the faded colors of the alienated images I decided to work on my own flower collection. Not with a pencel and paper, but with a camera, a huge watertank and a computer. The Florilegium Series pay’s tribute to nature’s most enchanting creatures: Flowers
Available works: Yes, limited.

All works of the new Florilegium Series (2017- 2018) are unique, except the square one, that one comes in an edition of 10.
