floral lab: annet van der voort



Photographer Annet van der Voort observes the transformation of flowers, especially tulips, and captures images of them in their various states of decay. Her technique for producing this remarkable artwork is completely without camera. In a complex process, van der Voort scans the wilting splendor of the flowers and, in doing so, expresses her understanding of vanitas — the philosophical idea of the transience of everything mundane.

Her images always slay me. How to choose which one to buy?

These are breathtaking. I may borrow one of these picts to post on my blog (I'm a bit of a bloggy klepto that way).

Hey, I am checking this blog using the phone and this appears to be kind of odd. Thought you'd wish to know. This is a great write-up nevertheless, did not mess that up.
