“It’s this epic story: My grandmother was colonial Indian, and it was a big old family secret because her mum had an affair with someone in India,” says the English rose Emilia Clarke. “She would wear makeup to make her skin look white.” Granny passed away when Clarke was 16, and the teenager took off for India with her boyfriend to scatter the ashes. “She loved India more than she loved England,” Clarke says. “Fuck, yeah. I love that part of me—I’m like one-eighth Indian.”

World Of Small Things | Ravikumar Jambunathan

“Through this body of work, I wanted to proclaim the subtle and delicate beauty of nature in its state of being.”

Ravikumar Jambunathan’s series, World Of Small Things relishes in the detail of the natural world. The heavily veined leaves, fanned ferns and white wildflowers, are clear and crisp representations of the beauty found in the tiny things of nature.

Floral Beauty in the Garden

Tammy Marlar’s guide to creating exquisite flower images this spring
Flowers are blooming in our gardens and across the countryside, making this the perfect time to put your botanical photography skills into practice; Tammy Marlar shows you how to capture standout images.

Make the flower, such as this pink dahlia, the dominant subject. Flowers are beautiful and intricate, and our images should accentuate their allure and infinite detail as much as possible.

Look for harmonious colours and storytelling details. With markings resembling eyes, a nose and a mouth, this seed head appears to be in conversation with the one next to it.

Rather than trying to get the whole subject, such as this eryngium seed head, in focus, choose a good plane of focus on the best angle of the flower, while paying equal attention to what is in your background.

Tell stories and elicit emotions where you can. I changed the orientation of this picture, as the seed head with the mass of flowing white seeds made me think of an American Indian chief, with his feathered headdress, on horseback.

Pick as perfect a flower specimen as possible. Noticing blemishes and removing cobwebs before you shoot an image can save you hours of retouching.

Macro photography is something I enjoy doing in my free time. I work as a children photographer for almost 8 years and I love it.

Flowers by Magda Indigo
“I love ‘playing’ with the light, bringing out details, shades. To do that, you absolutely need to understand what you are portraying, whether it is human, animal, vegetable or mineral.”

“Some of my compositions are unconventional for flowers. That is creativity and also, as I love to say, I don’t talk to flowers but gladly listen to what they tell me, they are expressive, I see human emotion in them.”
