About this page

This is a small sample of Gimara's botanical photography.

"As an artist and scientist, I often view botanical art from divergent perspectives. As a scientist, I focus on the structures and functions relevant to my research, generally speaking. That often means that images of a specimen are taken in isolation; usually in a cold and clinical way with the exception of field work. My eye is trained to look for representative, undamaged and clean samples, even if the sample itself is abnormal. However, from the collection above you will see that I have photographed imperfect plants (with broken petals, water droplets, insects, dirt etc). I have not captured their essence using a standard scientific approach and thus for this particular collection I have decided to deliberately not label these images with their scientific names. A link to my scientific botanical artwork will soon be added to this page, so you can visualise the similarities and differences. It is important to stress, that I feel very strongly that sciience is not mutually exclusive from art. Art and science are enthralling fields of study in their own rights, but when they converge, amazing things can happen. That area of convergence particularly fascinates me."
