Photographs of botanical gardens that look like oil paintings by Samuel Zeller

In his series Botanical, Swiss photographer and designer Samuel Zeller presents a modern photographic take on classical botanical illustrations produced between the 18th century and early 20th century. Reflecting the heritage of an architectural period and the years of botanical research, Zeller’s series combines these two fascinating subjects into one. Before moving into photography Samuel studied Graphic Design & Interactive Media Design at the CFPAA in Geneva. He has also worked in various design agencies creating retail spaces, editorial design and 3D visualisations for international brands. Zeller uses photography as a means of expressing emotion, a less constrained language of communication. Botanical pays homage to an architectural period, while celebrating botanical research through a collection of beautiful photographs, as a tribute to hand drawn illustrations of the past, opting for a modern digital photography technique to inspire this antique feeling.
