Botanical: Through the looking glass

Botanical is series by photographer Samuel Zeller. The series was inspired by the classical botanical illustrations from the 18th to 20th century. Samuel tried to capture the same effect by photographing plants through the translucent glass of greenhouses. He explored greenhouses and botanical gardens around Europe for over two years. The result will also be published as a book, edited by Hoxton Mini Press (London) in April 2018.

“Nature protected from the elements inspire me. A painting is hidden behind each window. Flowers sitting on the metal frame, playing with each other on a single plane like on a canvas, leaves growing in the smallest asperity. I found in those gardens the quietude of a museum” – Samuel Zeller
