Image Description: In these pictures, human bodies interferE in different ways with floral imagery.
Series Name: People are Flowers.
Series Description: In this body of work I have dealt with the issue of the fusion between the human bodies, the colourful organic fashion and floral imagery. In arts and other creative fields, floral imagery has always been a symbol of mysticism, sensuality and innocence. In the pictures I focus on emphasizing and exploring the sexuality of my muses with the floral structures as ersatz-attraction.
