HELIOTROPIS

photographer VIVIANE SASSEN

Heliotropis looks to go ‘beyond natural beauty’ with constructed and captured scenes that are conversely natural yet alien. Working with her favorite natural element, sunshine, and petal shaped filters the images explore the relationship between light, color and nature.

Heliotropis was commissioned by DITA Eyewear, as part of their arts-based editorial platform DITAworld, and saw Sassen returned to Africa to shoot an exclusive series of images over a period of six months in Morocco and Tanzania
