Denis O’Reilly, AIPF.

In the words of the famous artist Georgia O’ Keeffe:

“When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that world to you…”

This panel of work allows me to combine two of my great passions – flower gardening and photography. Meet some of the flowers I love and grow. They are presented in a variety of colours shapes textures and form which give each flower its own personality. They are all photographed indoors in natural light and I’ve added a selection of my own textures to complement the flowers and to express how I see and feel about each one.

The Irish Photographic Federation awards distinctions on three levels – Licentiate, Associate and Fellowship, in ascending order.

The Associateship is the second of these levels and requires a panel of fifteen images to be presented for assessment. The panel should sit together as a cohesive body of work and demonstrate the applicant’s individuality and sustained ability in photography. Successful applicants are entitled to use the letters AIPF after their name.
