In this series I have tried to investigate and portray, with my images, the unique semblance of diversity in the various species of plants found in nature.   Plants do have their own distinct personality.This may be displayed through a sense of complexity; embracing colour manifestations; or exhibiting strong visual characteristics. Often they may be seen as fragile; or providing a sense of protection due to their size and diminished colour. There is often a tactile feeling that provides another dimension to the image.  So frequently, we are oblivious to the wonderful sense of movement that a plant is constantly revealing. How enchanting it is to feel a close relationship to the many forms of nature. My process of disassembling the plant, photographing each piece separately under different photographic techniques, reassembling the many images again plus the use of a dark background allows these divers plants to display their inimitable forms.
