Exploded Flowers, by Fong Qi Wei
Fong Qi Wei is a Singapore based photographer. In this series he tried to depict disassembled flowers much as Todd McLellan did in the Dissasembly Series. “This is a new series I have embarked on – exploded flowers. They are images that show the radial symmetry of flowers, and also individual floral components.” Fong Qi Wei explains.
“The act of disassembly […] lays bare the various shapes and textures of the flowers, and what is interesting to me is how much more expanded some flowers can get when they are disassembled – the relative surface area to size of a rose is so much greater compared to a larger flower like the sunflower“. The result is impressive.
