The graceful tulip flower has long been revered by artists; its balletic fall from sun-reaching to arced, due to the blossom’s weight, almost makes the tulip as exciting in it’s final days as a cut flower as it’s freshest. Swedish photographer Carl Kleiner captures this elegant devolution in his ongoing series Postures. Recalling Robert Mapplethorpe’s tulip photographs, Kleiner takes floral arrangement to a new, poetic level by supporting the tulips with minimal metal braces as they become relaxed and change shape, shot against a stark background. The dance is captured effectively in video format, where the natural form responds to gravity and the assistance of Kleiner’s design.
