Phytography is a method developed by me in 2016. This is the practical outcome of my research project focussed on the representation of the natural world in cinema, a project that is still ongoing. Phytography enables interaction between the phytochemical properties of plants and photochemical emulsion. It is also a method that strives for a deeper relationship with plants, both through observation and education. I have applied and exhibited this method in various ways: on film, in installations, directly on photopaper and as enlarged prints. More documentation about methods and materials can be found on this website. A paper describing the theoretical underpinning and historical context can be found here.
