Philosophy of the project
Tulipmania Art is a fine art photography project born out of love and admiration for the tulip, the most coveted flower in human history, which enraptured people all over the world to the extent of causing a true frenzy. Our project is, in a certain sense, a reinvention of the Dutch Golden Age tulip mania, in a revamped and aesthetic version, focusing on the passion for the tulip beauty, but aimed at collecting and preserving it for the generations to come in all its multitude of facets.
Besides documenting all the existing tulip species and their varieties, our purpose is to throw an artistic eye upon tulips through the magical magnifying glass of the photographic lens. The creative idea animating the project is to look inside the tulip world by magnifying every flower to the size of the human stature and capture it in great detail from different angles, by rotating it to 360°, in order to give the viewer the possibility to admire the myriads of colourful worlds unfolding within.
Tulipmania Art Journal
Tulips marked the cultures of different countries and peoples around the world and left indelible traces in many spheres of their modern life. However, time tends to throw the veil of oblivion over many episodes of the days gone by. That is why the purpose of our journal is to bring to light intriguing facts from the history of tulips and keep the record of the most interesting tulip occurrences of present days.
