When Shahidul invited me to exhibit some of my work at the festival I started by browsing and sifting through my past work to see what would fit best for the theme "Fragility". So I came upon this series of photographs of plants that are recovering in botanical gardens. I remember enjoying how the farmers were taking care of the plants. Putting veils and ropes on them. It seems to me that out of all the projects I've done this one has the deepest connection to the fragility of nature in general. The photographs were taken in different parts of the world but mostly in Oaxaca, Mexico. The Oaxaca pictures were later also published in the book 'Naturata'.
