Photographer Fleur Olby takes her inspiration from nature and seeks to capture its essence in her aesthetic. This evolved from a rural childhood in Yorkshire, where she continues to work on long-term projects.
Olby established her 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. She has a B.A.(Hons) & an M.A. in Graphic Design.
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.
