Humans with bouquets

I’ve been meaning to post pictures of this project here for a while, but when Spring hit last week, I knew the timing was simply perfect.

While vacationing in Marrakech – and visiting the neighboring town of Essaouira – with my friend Kiana and her family, we decided to shoot one of her bouquets by asking random strangers in the streets if they would kindly pose for the camera.

It was such a fun and spontaneous shoot, and we laughed all morning.

I love these shots and the expressions of the subjects portrayed. As soon as they started holding this pink bouquet, their face enlightened in front of our very eyes; vendors were applauding, teasing; we literally created a little and fun chaotic scene in the Medina, we got a few no’s – totally understandable, but many applauded the idea. There is so much humanity in these shots. It’s amazing how flowers change the mood and bring the best in us, don’t you think? I think I’ll print a few of these and place them en-enfilade on my hallway wall so I am always reminded that there is still so much beauty and humanity left in this world.

And since we are talking about my talented floral artist friend Kiana, have you had a chance to see her new book, Color Me Floral? It’s filled with gorgeous bouquets divided by color and season and offers a step-by-step tutorial for each bouquet. It’s simply stunning and very informative if you want to learn how to make grandiose bouquets. The link to the Color me Floral book page is here.

  1. Wow, these shots are just incredible. Each shot has such a different feel and emotion. An element of mystery too – I’m thinking about what must have been going on in each bouquet holders mind at the time. Beautifully executed and such a great idea! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I didn’t have a chance earlier to say how much I love this post and how I appreciate you, for 1) taking good pictures of me, and 2) for just being you! xoxo
