Alexander James: Flesh and Foliage series

by pascal iakovou

Organic: finding beauty in the inevitability of decay

– Flesh meets foliage in this portfolio of muted tones and live materials. My ‘Organic’ series unites the living human form with decaying matter of the plant world. Presented as stunning still-life images, models sleep in giant palm husks, seed pods and rare flora from around the world. The result is a unique series showcasing a new, obscure form which finds itself breathing new life into death. These Organic images are presented ‘as-shot’: the props models have been physically altered and photographed against a simple black background.

The background has been to be retouched to be so black ! So not really « as shot ».
