'Paradise' is a work inspired by the ancient Persian idea that there could be nothing more beautiful than a garden, and therefore paradise must exist in this form. Flower petals, and the simple delicacy of their shape and colour, were used subtly in the photographs to hint at this idea without being entirely clear. The idea of paradise is subjective and therefore unimaginable so rather than showing a literal interpretation, the abstract images aim to evoke thoughts of light, nature and the elements. It is hoped that the photographs will inspire and ignite the imagination of each viewer and within the images they will see their own paradise.
