13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Garden of marigolds
Throughout the year I collect dry plants or fresh plants and dry them, keep them, arrange them to a composition and make photos. Dry flowers, stems, leaves of trees and flowers give the photographer a wealth of patterns, colours and shapes. I do not think it is necessary that photo must always capture the entire plant in its all splendour. Sometimes only fragments or parts of the plants are sufficient to reveal the beauty of plants. The composition is for me as important as the subject itself. Photo is composed of dry leaves and individual petals of marigold.
