A dead plant is very beautiful, it’s fragility reminds us of our own mortality. Nigel Maudsley’s series was created after he lost his father. In therapy he learnt how to live in the moment, the ‘now’.
The series was taken on a medium format camera using natural light in his studio. Each image was printed tradtionaly.
