Exploded Flowers

For his new series titled "Exploded Flowers" photographer Qi Wei created striking images that show the radial symmetry of flowers, and also the individual floral components. Inspired by Todd McLellan’s Disassembly series, Qi Wei lays bare the various shapes and textures, to show how much more expanded some flowers can get when they are disassembled . He says, ""Of course, the incredibly ordered world of flowers lend itself to this technique wonderfully. My layout is slightly different in that I try to show (as far as possible) the relative positions of the petals, stamens and pistils with each other so that the radial symmetry is preserved and the flower is recognizable, but only just so."
