Dissembled Flowers

Inspired by Todd McLellan's Disassembled Objects, Singapore-based photographer Qi Wei created this beautiful series of images called “exploded flowers", by carefully disassembling different flowers and then photographing in a way that honors their radial symmetry.

From the artist’s website:

The act of disassembly (I hesitate to use the term dissection because this series is not meant to be a scientific treatise) lays bare the various shapes and textures of the flowers, and what is interesting to me is how much more expanded some flowers can get when they are disassembled – the relative surface area to size of a rose is so much greater compared to a larger flower like the sunflower.
