Flora

Flowers are a universal language.

We use them to redefine the vision of beauty: sometimes dark, always ephemeral. Borders between beautiful and ugly, life and death, darkness and light. Sexuality, feminity, beauty of the broken things, themes of the transgender, body acceptance, confidence. Beauty in the small details in everyday life, in common objects we don’t usually notice.

The natural diversity of colors, shapes, is infinite.

We choose whatever we are drawn to, and we start working from here. We think there are no rules, and disharmony can create a form of harmony.

There is beauty and poetry everywhere as long as we take the time to really look at things.

by Thomas Claisse and Karina Rikun, based in Paris.
