PrizeShortlist in Photography, Finalists in Photography
My passion for flowers was born from my passion for photography. To create pictures I would rummage through the bins of my local florist, befriend the sale assistants at a local garage to collect all their discounted flowers, and whenever possible, collect leftover wedding flowers from venues.
If I was ever running low on flowers but had an idea in my head bursting to come to life I would then look to the world around me, bushes on the side of the road and in the front gardens of the neighbourhoods Iâ€™d drive in would then become my canvas. I began to think of these as little pockets of magic hiding in the everyday. Soon how I looked at the world changed. Even a rainy grey day was beautiful for the softness of the diffused light dancing on luminous wet leaves. There is beauty and magic in the everyday ordinary.
