The Botanical Garden of Bordeaux presents an exhibition of about thirty works by Thomas Balaÿ, selected from the images in his books "Orchids" and "Succulentes, le design végétal", published by Ulmer.

Thomas Balaÿ's photographs reveal the diversity and beauty of the plant world that surrounds us.

A graduate in agronomy, his approach oscillates between scientific testimony, documentary and artistic research. His photographs come from various public and private collections, each plant is revisited in a sculptural stylisation, celebrating its elegance, volumes and colours.

From orchids, Thomas Balaÿ retranscribes the infinite delicacy, the unequalled diversity of their shapes and colours, the haloed purity of the mystery of flowering plants. To the apparent fragility of orchids, succulents, these "fat" and fleshy plants whose evolution stems from their capacity to resist the drought of deserts, respond.

Part of the artistic tradition of Karl Blossfeldt, photographer of the New German Objectivity, and Georgia O'Keeffe, American modernist painter, Thomas Balaÿ renews this heritage by offering a contemporary and delicate image of our fragile nature.

Thomas Balaÿ's images have been exhibited in various prestigious places such as the Galerie de l'Europe during the off of art and plant design, the greenhouses of Luxembourg, the Art Centre of the Château de Vascoeuil, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Palazzo Tagliaferro in Italy and the Patrick Gutknecht Gallery in Geneva, Switzerland.
