“In March 2015, after a long day of work, I took my camera to the Geneva Botanical Gardens. I often use photography as a way to relax and the gardens have a soothing atmosphere. There’s this greenhouse from 1913 with her beautiful delicate frame, filled with palm trees. The light was shining through the glass panels and I was mesmerised by what I saw. I wanted these images to pay tribute to the botanical illustrators and architects from the 18th century, especially for the amount of detail they put into their creations. Reality is refracted and plants becomes paintings.”
