Fleur Olby is a postgraduate of Central Saint Martins and an award-winning photographer.
Her creative process evolved from a rural childhood in Yorkshire, which instilled a fascination in Nature. She began exploring this through the detailed photography of plants, establishing her still life practice for editorial, design and advertising clients, in London (1993).
To date she has published one monograph: 'Fleur: Plant Portraits' (2005), which includes a large body of her work for 'The Observer' (1995-2002). She has also worked collaboratively on other publications including Jane Campsie's, 'Tea: The Perfect Brew' and Monty Don's, 'Gardening Mad'.
Recently, Olby's work has progressed into more diverse areas: her images have been developed for textile designs by the international company, Woven Image, and she has produced a permanent art installation at the City & Islington College, London, for Gollifer Langston Architects.
Olby continues to work on several projects which use inspiration, memories and dreams to describe Nature.
Dark, moody and sensual still life photographs of flowers in wintertime.
