If Passion Were A Flower
Lariane Fonseca

Here the shadows of the plants were miraculously distinct. She noticed the separate grains of earth in the flower beds as if she had a microscope stuck to her eye. She saw the intricacy of the twigs of every tree. —Virginia Woolf, Orlando Inspired by the writing of Virginia Woolf and the painting of Georgia O’Keefe, Lariane Fonseca uses the camera as a medium through which to depict the ‘passion of flowers’. This selection of her flowers showcases the breadth of her interest in nature’s contribution to the visual beauty and sensuality in our lives. It demonstrates her sensitivity and skill – a skill that reaches far beyond her comment – ‘I just take pictures’.

Bombay-born Fonseca evidently has an eye for and sensitivity to beauty: the texture of dew on petal, the slight blemishes and idiosyncrasies of individual flowers, an appreciation of shape and colour-these are all strengths in her photography.
