One of the reasons why I enjoy photographing flowers is for their beauty, as well as their darkness. I always say that I prefer dead ones, there is more character in them. Wilted, brown with flickers of colour from when they were alive. Flowers are given in time of celebration as well as in death. The later is what I'm drawn to most. All beautiful things age, it's the transient nature of youth and beauty. Which, I believe, is something that we shouldn't hold onto. In this fleeting moment, I capture these flowers in their prime and glory. But I also look forward to when they age because there is also beauty in their death.
