Exploded Flowers

Fong Qi Wei produced these wonderful exploded view flower photographs that I find inspiring, both as images unto themselves suggestive of some grander natural order, and as abstracted elements suitable for adaptation to ornamental use.

Or, as Eugéne Grasset wrote in 1896 of his own collection of lithographic flower prints, that they "represent natural forms in their exactitude, [while] bridging the distance between form as found in nature and form conventionalized in accordance with sound traditions of art."

Contact Fong Qi Wei directly, or through his blog, to purchase prints of his flower photography.

  1. Love the hydrangea and the chrysanthemum. They look like fireworks.
