Fleur Olby's photography began with a love of Nature and the desire to convey detail in essence of its simplest form. Evolving from a rural childhood in Yorkshire where she continues to work on her long-term series, 'The Colour Black.' About the connection with Nature, linking childhood memory to the present through sense and place.
Olby established as a still life photographer in London (1993) - at the time working for editorial, design and advertising clients.
Her monograph 'Fleur': Plant Portraits published by Fuel Publishing (2005) includes a seven-year body of work for 'The Observer.'
