This minimalist portrait of a pink columbine flower captures the exquisite color, shape, and texture of the bloom. This piece is a limited-edition archival print of a photograph by Dario Preger.
After many years focusing on the beauty of the human face in his portrait work, photographer Dario Preger has recently become fascinated with a new kind of portraiture, one that allows him to revel in color, shape, texture, tonality, and transparency. In his minimalistic flower images, Preger captures the incredible beauty of each stem. Using lighting to illuminate the intricate aesthetics of the natural world and a studied simplicity of composition, he offers a wonderfully fresh take on the classic botanical print.
