According to Samuel, Melbourne-based photographer Isamu Sawa was inspired to create the images by the leftover flowers from his wife’s bridal florist business and how their beauty lived on even after they had passed their use-by date.
To create the images, Sawa used a process called ‘focus stacking’, taking up to 25 close-up or macro images with graduating depths of field and then combining them to produce a single image.
For a show of the work at Sawa’s studio, Samuel designed an A3 brochure with an embossed cover. “The typeface is an altered version of Port Regular,” Samuel says. “We really linked its organic forms and thought they reflected the natural forms of the flowers”.
Samuel also designed the exhibition.
