Plant Curator has been appreciating the photography of Greek born artist Peter Zéglis and reflecting on how he uses plants in a scene. In his series ‘Misplacements / Misalignments’ he has images where plants do not take up much space, in others they dominate, but whatever their density they are always key to the scene and never just a backdrop. Perhaps the shrouding in mist or overcast skies are making recordings of everyday scenes appear recondite. Atmosphere, intrigue, seduction are all on show here. He says of his work:
“What I see through photography is relations. Ideally, between man or manmade, surrounding space and the natural environment. The impact social activities have on our environment and how its development affects us humans as social entities.”
Peter Zéglis lives and works in Gothenburg, Sweden. See his website for more details.
