exploding flowers.

16 Sep

a tremendously gorgeous take on flower photography by Qi Wei proves flowers to be as beautiful deconstructed as they are put together.

the exploding flowers series examines the physicality and symmetry of flowers.

wei explains:

“The act of disassembly (I hesitate to use the term dissection because this series is not meant to be a scientific treatise) lays bare the various shapes and textures of the flowers, and what is interesting to me is how much more expanded some flowers can get when they are disassembled – the relative surface area to size of a rose is so much greater compared to a larger flower like the sunflower.”

i’ve been coming back to these images for a few weeks now. finally time to share them.

are you as in awe as i am?
