Noble wrinkles

A hymn to the withering tulip

Inspired by the vanitas still lifes of the Old Masters of the Dutch Golden Age painting, this photo series goes, however, beyond their idea of ephemerality, being intended not to remind of the transience of life, but to draw attention to the noble traits the age brings about.

By observing the tulips while gradually advancing in their ripe days, we managed to capture in thousands of shots that incredible, so often unnoticed, almost magnetic beauty of the withering tulips. That is why this series is by no means to be regarded as a mere documentation of one of the natural phases of the tulip life cycle, but as a glorifying hymn to the tulip’s upright and graceful ageing.
