About Fleur Olby

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, at that time working for editorial, design and advertising clients. She holds a silver D&AD for a Royal Mail millennium stamp and has contributed to D&AD and GMG Award panels.

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.
