Daniel Shipp – ‘Botanical Inquiry’

Daniel Shipp‘s series ‘Botanical Inquiry‘ – the ability of plants to adapt and survive in the world humans have created.

Exploring the quietly menacing effect, unremarkable plants as storytelling elements were collected and staged against the backdrop of common urban environments.

“By manipulating the optical and staging properties of photography with an analogue machine that I have constructed, I have produced these studio based images in camera rather using Photoshop compositing. They rely exclusively on the singular perspective of the camera to render their mechanics invisible.”
