flower portraits

This series of images is part of a flower study where Anniek photographs flowers with instant cameras. She has always loved flowers, plants and nature and it gives her peace and comfort to take pictures of them.

Special techniques have been applied to some images, such as experimenting with the chemicals in the photos.

Some of these visuals have been soaked in water for weeks or have been edited by hand with water or (cleaning)products while the photo is still under development. You never know the exact result in advance, so all visuals are unique.

“Especially the process of growing, blooming and falling out is quite interesting and inspiring and  experimenting with the images enhances the feeling I want to convey.”
