Phytography is a technique developed by me in 2016. This is the practical outcome of my research project focused on the relationship between nature and culture in cinema, a project that is still ongoing. Phytography enables interaction between the phytochemical properties of plants and photochemical emulsion. It is also an approach that strives for a deeper relationship with plants, both through observation and education. I have applied and exhibited this concept in various ways: in films, 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.
