This photographic series aims to resonate a moment of stillness and peace amidst commotion and chaos. To reflect this thought, the Orchid was chosen as their ability to bloom and regenerate during any season of the year echoes the similar ebbed flow of a human's life. The rapid movement effect which brings aspects of the flower into focus, naturally acts as a cause for pause, thought and reflection from the viewer.
