Fine Art Flower & Garden Photography
BY GINA DOVER-JAQUES
Soulful Portrayals of Flowers & Gardens
CAPTURED ON ANALOGUE FILM
Since being captivated by flowers & gardens after recently photographing the seasonal changes of an evocative 'garden for nature', I bid a fond farewell to a glorious decade of wedding photography and look forward to, with much excitement, creating beautiful stories of inspiring gardens, gardeners, flowers, and flower growers.
Poetry & Intuition
it is the sole that I seek
I shed a tear the day I stood in front of 'The Haystacks at Giverny' by Claude Monet. Artists that create less what they see and more what they feel resonates with me.
Capturing a flower or garden in a poetic way using intuition and natural light is my prime focus. By pausing to notice what is all around me, the rustling of leaves on a tree, the breeze on my face, bird song, the light as it kisses a flower plays an integral part to the story telling, and the joy that comes from being in such places of timeless beauty.
The day I paused & created from the heart is when I
blossomed as a photographer
"The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance"
