The Most Beautiful Flowers by Kenji Toma brings the inner beauty and essence of the flower as seen through the eyes of the experienced photographer. From his careful selection of paper to how to present flowers in his photographs, Toma revives the concept of the botanical encyclopedia.
This photo series is Kenji Toma's homage to the botanical illustrations in Choix Des Plus Belles Fleurs by Pierre-Joseph Redouté, one of the most well-regarded flower encyclopedias of the nineteenth century. Back when color photography did not exist, these images were illustrated with the purpose of replicating the botanic subject as realistically as possible.
In The Most Beautiful Flowers, Toma is interested in doing the exact opposite with the photographic medium which, realistic by nature, can also be used to make a subject look unreal and artificial. The result makes The Most Beautiful Flowers a must have for anyone who loves flowers, photography and art.
