Big is beautiful. Just take at took at these beautiful images by photographer Paul Lange! In his series “Big Blooms,” he is able to transform familiar flowers into something larger than life! Working with concepts of size, scale and gestures, Paul was able to created something special. In fact, he called his series of floral portraits Big Blooms because the images are blown up and “thrown out of scale.”
With a background in fashion portraiture, he knows how to use lighting, form and composition to create these stunning floral images. Each flower was photographed on a stark white background, and lit as though it was a human subject. The flowers were carefully and meticulously hand-picked out of hundreds from a garden estate close to the photographer’s home each spring and summer.
Big Blooms was started back in 2007 and is an ongoing project.
Paul previously has worked as a fashion photographer for 25 years before he decided to focus on Fine Art Photography. To see more of his work, visit his website.
