Description

A collection of macro photographs exploring the vivid and wild colours and details of flowers. Shot over 5 years in the United Kingdom.

I went for a walk in a tropical garden in Devon. To make life interesting I only took a 100mm macro lens. I shot pretty much exclusively at its closest focus setting that day.

That was 5 years ago.

It has become an obsession. Every year I think I’ve finished – then I find a new colour. I’m not sure I’ll ever stop, but I’m very happy with this collection. When I first started putting this collection into book form, it was 50 pages. Now its 218. It’s a big old book, and it’s bursting with colour.

Through this series, I’ve been constantly trying to push the focus smaller, and thinner, not attempting to represent the flower as a whole, but to boil it down to its essence. That shock of wild colour, the intricacy of the structure. Maybe that’s what the bees (like me) are drawn to?

WILD is a hardcover, sewn-bound, 208 page book on 170gsm glossy stock.

It’s big.

I feel in the current world of infinite, perfect replication of digital media, it’s nice to make things a bit special. As such, I’m doing a really limited run of this first edition. Only 100 copies. Each will be hand-numbered and signed
