Inspired by the writing of Virginia Woolf and the painting of Georgia O'Keefe, Lariane Fonseca uses the camera as a medium through which to depict the ?passion of flowers'. This selection of her flowers showcases the breadth of her interest in nature's contribution to the visual beauty and sensuality in our lives. It demonstrates her sensitivity and skill ? a skill that reaches far beyond her comment ? ?I just take pictures'.
"Whilst photographing flowers and other aspects of nature, I have always maintained a philosophy of non-interference with the subject. I have never cut, placed, trampled, held or pushed out of my way any of the subject material." -- Lariane Fonseca, 1992.
