Botanical Inquiry, an exciting solo show by Sydney-based photographer Daniel Shipp. Trained in Fine Arts, Daniel is an in-demand commercial photographer. Botanical Inquiry presents a series of images where nature, geography and physics are shuffled to present familiar yet fictional environments. Traditional cinematic techniques have been used rather than photoshop compositing to conjure visual illusions and make us re-notice these everyday ‘common’ plants.
“I’ve played with scale, stylised the light, and recontextualised my subjects in the hope that you will look twice – and then look again.”
– Daniel Shipp
This evocative body of work was a cover and feature story in the April issue of Art Almanac.
Thank you to all that braved the WILDEST weather Sydney has ever seen and came to Daniel Shipp’s ‘Botanical Inquiry’ opening event. We hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we did!
Here are some photos from the opening night.
