Sarracenia like you’ve never seen them before!

In this post, I’m inviting you to look at Sarracenia in a different way. We often admire them from a “big picture” perspective, like how tall they grow, the colors they turn, and their overall shapes.

But I don’t often see conversation about their most basic shapes and structures. The veins and minute structures that connect the veins, the shapes created in a single square centimeter. These are some of the things that fascinate me most. I’ve always loved macro photography because of how it changes and abstracts things we’re so familiar with.

Most of us see our plants every day, but how often do we see them like this?

When I was a photography student, the main idea throughout most of my projects was shooting what people didn’t ordinarily see. Usually this was macro photography or abstracting images that would normally be recognizable. I still enjoy the challenge of using photography to show what is not always seen. Through my images, I love encouraging people to see from a different perspective!

Thank you so much for viewing! What do you think of the photos? Got a favorite? Can you guess which Sarracenia they are? Leave me a comment and let me know!
