Fleur Olby Network
Fleur Olby's photography began with a love of nature and the desire to convey detail and essence in its simplest form.
This evolved from a rural childhood in Yorkshire, where she continues to work on a long-term project - 'Colour from Black' - Small series about the connection with nature.
Olby established as a still life practice in London over twenty years ago, working for editorial, design and advertising clients. A large body of work for 'The Observer' is included in her monograph 'Fleur' - Plant Portraits.
Through recent collaborative projects Plant Portrait images have developed into textile designs and installations.
Olby holds a silver D&AD for a Royal Mail Millennium stamp, a B.A.(Hons), an M.A. both in Graphic Design, and has contributed to D&AD and GMG Award panels.
Her still life work has been published by: Gardens Illustrated, Creative Review, The Independent, Bloomsbury Publishing, Fuel Publishing, Waitrose Food Illustrated, The Sunday Times, Elle, Vogue, Wallpaper, The Body Shop, Selfridges, Conran, De Beers and Dunhill.
Dark, moody and sensual still life photographs of flowers in wintertime.
