The portrait project was started in 2010. I invited ladies to pose with flowers and tried to show each lady’s character and similarity to their chosen flower.
My intention was to create visually interesting portraits and I didn’t try to find any deeper meaning. Only later I noticed something interesting- all the ladies who posed for this project are emigrant woman from Eastern Europe countries- Latvia and Poland. They all are very beautiful and strong woman who could overcome all the difficulties integrating in different culture and find their places and be the very important part in the community they are living in now.
The project is ongoing. At the end of this project I hope to publish these pictures in a book.
