In the exhibition FADING BEAUTY, the gallery nüüd.berlin presents the impressive flower photographs of renowned fashion and portrait photographer Dale Grant.
Dale Grant, born in the Bahamas and living in Berlin and Rotterdam, has embarked on a unique artistic journey to capture beauty as it fades. For him, flowers represent a profound allegory of life. The artist sees them not only as colourful creatures, but also as a symbol of the cycle of life - from youth to wilting, from radiance to transience.
In the exhibition "FADING BEAUTY", Dale Grant reveals the true and unique beauty of flowers when they begin to wither. The petals unfold completely and their vibrant colours become more muted until they finally become transparent and fragile.
The artist began photographing flowers a few years ago in New York, simply out of a need to explore something new. He not only photographed fresh cut flowers, but also those that were at the end of their life cycle.
Through this experience, Dale Grant discovered the beauty in the falling petals that fell to the ground, and he recognised in them a reflection of life and death that can also be found in our own existence.
