Flowers, birds, tree leaves… Ben Lewis Giles is a talented young artist from Suffolk, England, who is immensely generous with details and… flowers. His collage work features elements belonging to nature juxtaposed with poetic photos of girls waking up to spring’s arrival. In an interview Giles mentioned, “If this is in regards to the flower collages, Its about the celebration of life, and the speed and fragility of our existence, we exist and its bright, colorful, then it withers and dies and crumbles into the earth, like us, it’s personal though. For me, it was when I was entering a new time, reaching the surface of water and taking a breath of air, appreciating whats around me and embracing it.” So wake up, spring is here!
