    Silver in Fine Art/Still Life

These photographs are from my recent project "Floating Garden". I collect the flowers, petals, twigs and other herbs around my home, arrange them in the water and mix with color pigments and oil. Then I freeze them. After melting I try to capture the unstable forms with my camera through the aqueous medium. With this process I want to emphasize the gentle and decaying forms and textures.
