Photography: The Hidden Geometry of Flowers

I LOVE exploring the underlying symmetry and geometry of nature, particularly evident in the beautiful mandala patterns of flower faces. It reminds us of the geometry that underlies all existence, that to me points to the existence of a higher intelligence at play; a cosmic grand designer responsible for all of creation.

41Q+72ALDhL._SX258_BO1,204,203,200_Inspired by the beautiful book; The Hidden Geometry of Flowers: Living Rhythms, Form and Number by Keith Critchlow, I have been exploring the flower face mandalas in my own photography, see album below. Doing so has been a celebration of geometric lawfulness and has served to enhance my relationship to the natural world. I found myself becoming mindful of the nuances of fragrance, colour and form in flowers, and increasingly aware of the geometry that surrounds us, hinting at how the universe takes shape.

The flower is teacher of symmetry and geometry that can be treated as sources of remembering — a way of recalling our own wholeness, as well as awakening our inner power of recognition and consciousness. ~ Keith Critchlow

daisy-geometryAccording to Keith Critchlow, the flower is a teacher of symmetry and geometry (the eternal verities, as Plato called them). In this sense, Critchlow tells us, we can treat flowers as sources of remembering ways of recalling our own wholeness, as well as awakening our inner power of recognition and consciousness. The book is beautifully illustrated with stunning flower photos that illustrates the principle creation codes, and invites us to recognise our interrelationship with the natural world. His illuminating study attempts to re-engage the human spirit in its intimate relation with all nature.

    very interesting words and wonderful photos. Flowers are really fascinating me, too. I heard that everything in nature is created in the golden ratio. That’s why it’s so perfect and beautiful.

      Thanks, glad you like it. YESSS the golden ratio is an underlying creation code underpinning all of nature including the proportions of our own body! I’ll blog about it soon and compile photos of all the spiral forms in nature such as the pattern of the florets of a flower, the bracts of a pinecone, vortex of a hurricane, galaxy formations, or the scales of a pineapple. Fascinating stuff!! x
