This is a personal photography series featuring garden variety flowers. These works metaphorically details the beauty and struggles between ‘Life’ and ‘Death’.
A few years ago I went through a phase attempting to grow my own garden of flowers and plants from scratch. However, due to my lack of experience and persistence the project proved to be a ‘dud’. Here is the link to my first trial. Despite feeling guilty from this ordeal I ended up appreciating the auto-mechanism that is nature. Regardless of how much or little attention I gave my plants, they all had one instinct that was embedded in its DNA. That was/ is to live and grow. Now matter the health of the plant, it just wouldn’t give up, not until the last of its fibres ‘gave way’. This in itself is a beautiful thing. I decided to capture the essence of ‘Life’ giving way to ‘Death’ and vice versa in these fleeting moments.
