Herbarium of Summer Memories

These photos symbolize the warmth of a summer day, the carefreeness and beauty of the little things in life. Each plant in these photos carries a memory of the summer spent on the Adriatic. I collected them every day on the way back from the beach. Although they are dry and seem lifeless, they carry within them the seeds of new life. To emphasize their delicate and fragile structure, I photographed them submerged in water. The colors in the photographs are intentionally reduced to warm or cold. Golden yellow and orange hue symbolize the warmth of the sun in summer and blue-green is the color of the Adriatic Sea.
This is an project started in 2021.
