Collier Schorr.

Lilly Pads #2, 2006.

Die Blaumann-Akademie (Cornelius), 2008.

 

After her masculine portraits of wrestlers and young men in military uniforms, American photographer COLLIER SCHORR worked on a project called Forests and Fields, where she documented life (real and imagined) in the small German town of Schwäbisch Gmünd. When she started making flower pictures she wanted to make portraits of something that escaped nationality and identity, but that kept an idea of the “pose” and a kind of struggle between the subject and the photographer – so she uprooted the flowers and transported them to another location, tied them and watched them die.
