Departing from his comfort zone of photographing people compared to still-life, Shanghai-based photographer Egill Bjarki challenged himself with the creation of his colorful, eye-pleasing series Flora. Nature provided the inspiration and Bjarki filled in the rest, working in a big warehouse during one night shift to create the series. He says working through the night influenced the work; the images have a silent and glow-in-the-dark feel to them. Bjarki’s flora-scapes are smartly composed and balanced, shot straight on like the way he would a portrait. Electric and tantalizing, Flora is a perfect example of the power of light, color, texture and composition.
