CONTINUOUS GARDENS

Still Life Photography

A series of still lifes made with fictional future plants. The images question the way in which plant life will evolve in due to human intervention. I’ve been always fascinated and curious about extinct species and discovered that there is a whole lost world of plants behind us, but I’m hoping for an even richer world ahead, a futuristic wonderland.

Through color and boundless imagination, it sheds a stimulating light of optimism to the grim reality of climate change.
