Ode to Botanical Illustration references the rich history of botanical illustration and considers the unique standpoint they have as artifacts that are both parts scientific and artistic, as well as the wonder and fascination that the aesthetics of nature have garnered throughout history. By directly referencing compositions typical of botanical studies as well as utilising a flat, almost two-dimensional appearance, the series also challenges the common belief that photography is inferior to illustration in the accurate study of plants.
