Photography: Ester Grass Vergara makes plants look magical in monochrome

Posted by Maisie Skidmore,

Ester Gras Vergara’s portfolio is predominantly populated with colourful portraits of men and women lounging around and looking beautiful in an utterly untouched way, and it’s a skill she’s particularly good at. In the midst of those images though, are these; black and white photographs of trees and plants turning translucent in the sunshine, casting shadows on huge buildings and generally looking dreamy. For something of a side-note in a body of what is already very impressive work, they’re incredibly alluring; dramatic and striking and yet completely unpretentious. We like them an awful lot.
