Andrew Putter has created these photographs by arranging South African flowers like 17th century Dutch still lifes. The works are a commentary on South African identity and how it’s been entwined with the history of colonialism, but theory isn’t necessary to enjoy these beautiful images.

South Africa’s flora is amazingly diverse and it’s great to see this heritage being celebrated like this. To make these works Putter worked with a large team including a photographer, guides, historians, and florists.  Read more about the exhibition Hottentots Holland: Flora Capensis.
