I’ve bought six new IKEA glasses but one of them got broken when I washed it for the first time. Of course, I wouldn’t just throw it away, as well as my daughter couldn’t throw away a Camellia blossom she has found fallen at the ground two days later…
I believe these two imperfect subjects made a perfect combination. What do you think?

April 2008. Canon EOS 300X, Sigma 28-135. Tripod: Manfrotto 055/141RC. Continuous light: Falcon Eyes LHG-500. Placed on a glass plate, seamless background made from a sheet of white paper. Lit from bottom, through the glass plate. Post-processing: levels, desaturation (only to correct white balance), retouch (scratches on the negative), crop.

Lenka tries to capture positive emotions. Her work features images highlighting inner and outer beauty of various subjects. She loves finding unique and unexpected perspectives of subjects normally considered as ordinary.

    it is a great idea, well executed too. i think the flower and broken glass in the front are more appealing somehow than the perfect one in the back. great work.
