About to be presented for the first time in the upcoming Hamiltons Gallery exhibition, the Gilles Bensimon Watercolor photography series is truly exceptional in its beauty.

Photographer Gilles Bensimon wanted to express the unlimited beauty of blooms from all around the world in a completely different and unexpected way. He submerged various floral arrangements into clear blue waters to give them a mysterious and surreal look where colors and lines blend together, creating a single mass of enchanting foliage. Light glimmers off the rippled surface, adding a layer of shine and texture on top of the natural beauty of the flowers.

The element of water in the Gilles Bensimon Watercolor photography series gives the brightly colored blooms a painted appearance.
