Leaf Pattern Design

Debra Burger


"As a photographer and graphic designer, I challenged myself to create a series of images from specimens that I grew or collected in my garden. This endeavor presents the perfect blend of two of my passions, photography and horticulture. My approach in the Botanicals series looks at my garden through a close-up view of color, form, and texture.

I developed this unusual approach to capturing images without a conventional camera, instead, I employ a flatbed scanner. This allows for greater-than-life scale and clarity of minute details, resulting in a unique perspective for the viewer.


My Botanicals series shows objects abstracted against a stark black background, allowing the mystery of nature to rise to the forefront."
