Even If It's Been Done Before, Do It Again
I'm always impressed when a photographer--or any artist, for that matter--can take a subject that has been well covered by countless artists previously, and turn it into something special that's unlike anything I've ever seen before. That's exactly the case with these very simple, very beautiful flower photographs by artist Sasha Kurmaz. These photographs don't appear to involve any particularly unique special effects, but quite simply they are gorgeous. It takes something special to photograph flowers in a "new" way, and there's a lesson in that. Everything may have been done before, but that doesn't mean there's not plenty of room for each of us to put our own spin on any given subject. Thankfully Kurmaz didn't shy away from this well covered territory.
