DESCRIPTION

'Barwinek pospolity, Vinca minor' is from the 'Polish Meadows' series, which focuses on medicinal flora of Southeast Poland. Many of the plants featured are internationally recognised herbs with medicinal properties, such as nettle or elderberry. During my childhood I was introduced to the therapeutic power of local plants by my mother and grandmother and joined them in collecting herbs and weeds to make home remedies.

The images are created by an experimental biochrome process fusing organic and photographic materials that I have been developing for over a decade. This photo-media exploration allows for transformation of flora during organic processes of decomposition, merging art and science to join in global discourses of bio art.
