“Er Naro belongs to the Extraordinary Plant Collection of Ranno ’o Astra. This flower grows only when someone is looking at it. That is why it hardly ever achieves its full size, especially in wild nature. That is why it is so rare. It is a carnivorous plant, it derives most of its nutrients from trapping small animals and birds. By spraying its spores it leaves animals immobile and causes severe hallucinations from which no living creature can escape.“ This photograph was made in close to complete darkness using the light painting technique. The flower is 100% hand-crafted.

Still-life photographer and light painter, Vadims Pjatrikovs is well-known for his style and the way of controlling the light. Having over 15 years of experience as a professional photographer, he has been working on different commercial and still life photography projects in London, UK, for the last 10 years. There is always something new and innovative happening in Vadim's world. And what makes his style recognizable today is this special oil painting look of his photography artwork.
