Evanescence by Annaick Guitteny

This portfolio presents a series of close-ups of plants, covered in water droplets. I love capturing these fleeting moments early in the morning, when these ephemeral little pearls adorn plants and illuminate them.

Specimens photographed include; Alchemilla mollis, Pennisetum, Nigella damascena, Pennisetum villosum, Hosta, and Tragopogon crocifolius.

Quote from Valda Bailey FRPS, ‘Portfolios’ Judge:

“This portfolio stood out for me because of its elegance and restraint. The delicacy of the droplet-laden stems and leaves contrasted beautifully with the negative space. The soft indigo gave the set a sense of calm and the skilled use of depth of field highlighted the fragile nature of the subject matter.”
