It has been an exciting start to the week as the first pieces from 'Glass' arrive in the studio. In this new body of work Alexander James has developed a process that naturally removes all the pigment from the capillaries in rose petals. It is a complex process that over time replaces the pigment with highly purified water leaving behind only the skeletal fibre and plant structure visible; all while the plant still lives and grows. These beautifully detailed and painterly photographic works are captured underwater and presented 'as shot' without the use of post production either traditional or digital.
