“I always felt that plants have a secret life. First, you don´t recognize them, they seem to be invisible. Once they start to grow you might ask yourself who they are and what they might look like. With the start of blooming you´re mesmerized by their beauty, and when you return the very next day to get a second look, they are gone.”
A series of photography works by Carsten Witte. He records the textural beauty the moment when flowers bloom. Unlike traditional photography, his unique treatment to the images reminded me of the texture rubbing exercise I do as a kind. It is the kind of surprise you get when you manage to rub a texture out. It was exactly the same sentiments when I saw this series.
From another perspective, they reveal secrets of the systems plants adapted.
