“Without water plants wither and die. But even in death their beauty lingers in a moment of fleeting, serene imperfection; a delicate death, preserved forever for those who remain.” Isamu Sawa
Adopting a sophisticated macro photographic technique more commonly used in science than art, ‘Without Water’ is a series of highly detailed botanical images reminiscent of the plates and sketches of the Georgian botanists. Sawa renders his subjects rich in texture and form, revealing an almost otherworldly beauty.
