The power of simple ideas done beautifully and with conviction will never cease to amaze me. Today I give you “Nurture Studies” by fine art photographer Diana Scherer. This project is presented as a collection of images of 32 flowers which the artist has grown from seed over a six-month period. Rather than growing the flowers in open soil, each seed was planted inside a different shape vase. At the end of the growth period, the plant’s “corset” is removed, revealing a shape evocative of their absent container.

So simple and so beautiful – I absolutely love it. And you? Although, come to think of it, some people might argue this project falls in the category of “plant cruelty” (if there is such a thing…)
