This project is inspired by the herbarium. My work explores the relationship between nature and culture. Instead of photograph natural plants I focused on artificial flowers. In my series I was interested in borrowing methods of representation, as well as working methods, from the natural sciences, from anthropological and archaeological practices and from still-life painting tradition to use in my photographic work.
One of my aims is to use irony and humour to investigate the concept of truth in photography and to ask how we actually want to view nature.
