Fleur Olby's photography began with a love of nature and the desire to convey detail and essence in its simplest form. This evolved from a rural childhood in Yorkshire, where she continues to work on a long-term project - Colour from Black - Small series about the connection with nature.
Olby established as a still life practice in London over twenty years ago, working for editorial, design and advertising clients. A large body of work for The Observer is included in her monograph Fleur - Plant Portraits.
Through recent collaborative projects her botanical images have developed into textile designs and installations.
