Shocking Floral Photographs
Flowers and floral arrangements are a point of interest that most photographers have shot at some point in their development as hobbyists or professionals. They’re naturally beautiful and give a good self esteem boost when a pretty picture turns out. While pictures of flowers are often over-done; Robert Buelteman’s takes a different route and puts an electrifying twist to his images.
In 1999, Robert decided to diverge from traditional imaging techniques and decided to photograph without using camaras, lenses, or computers. He developed a nerve-wracking processing involving a 40,000 volt generator which sends current traveling through a plant and a painstaking fiber-optic light painting that exposes the subject. The results are he captures are incredibly unique. To see more of Robert’s work, check out his website.
