Megan Bowers creates and documents flowers & plants and carefully presses them to preserve their delicate shape and colour. Photographing these subjects gives the viewer a chance to stop and recognize something that is often ignored.
Each plant was carefully dried for five days between a press created with ply wood, watercolour paper and cardboard. This method allows the plant to breathe, keeping close to its natural colour. Megan found each plant throughout different areas in Kelowna. She was drawn to these specific plants for their symmetry and bold components.
Megan’s artistic efforts are concerned with finding complexity and beauty in the ordinary and mundane giving each photograph its own unique aesthetic.
