Wild Plant Arrangements Turn Human

Artist Camila Carlow arranges plant-life, transforming them into eerily beautiful human-like organs.

These plant organs are made out of foraged plants and weeds. The plants had to be collected and assembled early in the day so they could be photographed in the best available natural light to keep them as fresh as possible.

Camila Carlow would study a particular organ the night before, and then visualize the kind of parts she needed. Once she was home she would start arranging the plants into that specific organ.

Many times she would find foliage that she had would naturally arrange itself into a different organ.

She said she likes that they present our vital structures as attractive and beautiful organisms. Some people are put off by images of our anatomy, so she said she likes to invite a fresh perspective of these miraculous structures that are working to keep us alive.

Camila Carlow is a Guatemalan-born artist based in Bristol, England.
