Beautiful Botany

Erwan Frotin is a lover of art and nature alike. The French-born, Swiss-trained photographer is often inspired by his passion for botany, as seen in his series entitled “Flora Olbiensis.” Each image is like a portrait, magnifying and exposing every tiny, delicate detail of leaf and limb. Backdrops are well chosen so as not to distract from such features but rather to highlight them.

This project – with its specific aim of showcasing the plants of the Villa Noailles – was initiated and sponsored by the Villa Noailles Association and the French Ministry of Culture and Communication. With this skillful photographer behind the lens, the results were, I think, marvelous.
