ARCHIVE POST – Number 2 : Flower Spectrum – Blue

Since 2005 I have been working on a project called FLOWER SPECTRUM. Close up abstract flower portraits exploring the saturation and colour found in these extraordinary plants. It’s now turned into a massive project with a bout 2000 images and counting.  I’m going to start posting through the spectrum and adding new images as they come. many of these have been taken at SISSINGHURST CASTLE in Kent where Vita Sackville West lived with Harold Nicolson, together they created this incredible garden. This is the blue end of the spectrum… Really these photographs are about SATURATION. For me this is the most important factor about colour, not the colour or chroma choice but the saturation of a colour
