Samuel Zeller’s series Botanical #celebratephotography

NewImage

This series is incredible! From Creative Boom:

In his series Botanical, Swiss photographer and designer Samuel Zeller presents a modern photographic take on classical botanical illustrations produced between the 18th century and early 20th century.

He explains: “Reality is refracted by the greenhouse’s ground glass and reminds me of the paper used in watercolour paintings. The colours are subtle and sophisticated, they mirror the tones found in this kind of illustration.”

Reflecting the heritage of an architectural period and the years of botanical research, Zeller’s series combines these two fascinating subjects into one.

He added: “The greenhouse in which resides the subject of this photographic’s series is a controlled environment that aims to protect exotic plants by creating better climate conditions than the local weather; it’s also a beautiful creation of metal and glass, dedicated, refined, elegant (just like the plants inside). The structure itself becomes a frame in some images. By using digital photography techniques, I wanted to pay a tribute to botanical illustrators and reproduce hand drawn illustrations as they were done in the 18th century.”
