Samuel Zeller – ‘Botanical’

Samuel Zeller‘s series ‘Botanical’ – soft, blurry impressions of exotic plants seen through the translucent glass of greenhouses throughout Europe, with a bit of inspiration from Claude Monet, August Renoir and Gustave Caillebotte. By capturing a refracted reality, these images reveal the painterly beauty and a rare serenity of such hidden gardens found in the heart of each city.

“I’ve always enjoyed going to museums, and I developed an attraction for painting, specifically Impressionist ones. In my personal and mostly abstract work I aim to give something for the viewer to interpret without giving away the subject instantly. I’d like to inspire people to love art more, to visit museums, to admire painters, artists and most importantly to dream more. Photography for me isn’t just about capturing reality, it’s also about giving the viewer a bit of a recipe to help them see the world differently.” (Rucksack Magazine)
