Black & White Flower Photography

Milk Thistle

Milk Thistle is a black and white flower photography series. This series of images is an exploration of romance and poetry in the physical form. A dancer appears in each frame blindfolded with a bouquet of flowers. Each black and white image captures themes of longing, remembrance and connection with those who are not physically present.

 

The monochromatic color scheme, flowers and blindfolds help convey symbolic emotions in this series. The presence of flowers symbolizes the ‘garden of our conscious thoughts’. Likewise, how they are clutched, and occasionally lost, by the dancer in each image communicates a warm remembrance and embrace. Similarly, the blindfold worn by the figure in each frame connects the images to abstract themes like longing and remembrance that are not seen but felt.
