This collection of twenty-two botancial studies is an exploration of form, light and shade, creating a sculptural quality, as though each flower is carved from stone.
ABOUT THE SERIES: PETALUM
Petalum is Paul's original floral series; evolving from an initial portrait of a small pink tulip, to inspiring a full series of black and white floral portraits.
The darkness surrounding each bloom lends the images elegance and gravitas and allows the viewers' attention to focus completely on the flower; its form, texture and detail.
The initial study, Pink Tulip IV, has won numerous international awards and the Petalum series as a whole earned Paul the coveted Fellowship at the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP), which he attained for “distinguished and exceptional ability and creativity”
