Kim is currently living in Perth having recently returned from spending some time in Japan. He sent us this beautiful collection of his macro flower photography, which was taken over there in the springtime. Thank you Kim.
A word from the photographer:
“I first got seriously into photography when I was living in Saga, Japan, between 1998 and 2000. Over the years I’ve come to specialise in macro photos of flowers, in particular native orchids, as well as body portraiture.
Quite recently I have been experimenting with overlaying these two subjects over each other (as seen on my headshot.) I have just recently returned from another year in Japan, this time in the verdant alps of Nagano. It was on this trip that I took these macro shots of the flowers. Many of them were just in gardens of houses in my neighbourhood.”
