Oliver Barnett Cape Town, South AfricaOliver is a fine art photographer based in Cape Town, South Africa. His images are inspired by the natural world and he spends a lot of time out in the field, drawing on his surroundings for inspiration. A ritualistic process sits at the core of his work; he distills his subjects to their essence and then re-imagines them into new patterns and structures. His work is a beautiful reminder of the need for balance and proportion in our relationship with our environment. Oliver is represented by galleries in South Africa and London.
Contemplative and lucid.
Canon 6D, with a 100mm Macro Lens.
Shot in Franschhoek and composed of a purple Forget-Me-Not and a single seed pod, Arvensis is a stunning meditation on the eternal cycle of life, death and renewal.
