The magnolia bugs

Inspired by the fact that I have recently planted a new magnolia tree in my garden, I came across these beautiful pictures of Kari Herer. Combining illustrations of flowers and insects with the real buds and blooms from the magnolia tree, these photographs are so inventive and original, I am totally impressed!

 

 

With spring in full effect and everything around is blooming, I’m inspired by Kari Herer’s photographs. She takes some beautiful pictures of flowers and animals. Her latest set of magnolia blossoms and flower illustrations is stunning.

 

 

I love the “magnolia bugs” mixed-media concept of a botanical illustration.  The soft white background allows the textures to tell the story.  The bug’s body comes to life under the velvety magnolia petals.

 

 

Kari Herer sees romance in everything she photographs.  The purity in her imagery transmits an aura of ease and innocence.  It is an ability to view ordinary objects with grace, whether by honing in on their color, form, or texture.  I find it so uplifting.

 

 

Take a peek at the entire series, along with more beautiful floras, in Kari Herer’s shop!
