New project: HANA

Introducing my new personal project: Hana / 花

This project began with my undying love for floral arrangements. Forever-inspired by blossoms, I was intrigued by the idea of shooting beautiful women, highlighted in soft light, exposing a sensual, emotive portraits that's both timeless and modern at the same time.

Featured flora: 

Calla Lily

In many paintings and other works of art throughout history, the calla lilyhas been depicted with the Virgin Mary or Angel of Annunciation. For this reason, it has been associated with holiness, faith and purity. Additionally, as the cone-line flowers blossom in spring, they have become symbols of youth and rebirth.

Chrysanthemum

A symbol of the sun, the Japanese consider the orderly unfolding of the chrysanthemum's petals to represent perfection, and Confucius once suggested they be used as an object of meditation. It's said that a single petal of this celebrated flower placed at the bottom of a wine glass will encourage a long and healthy life.

Yellow Rose

With their optimistic hue and general association with good cheer, yellow roses are the perfect way to toast friends, lift spirits and send a general wish for well-being.
