Black Flowers Secret Garden
by Yuri Catania

Welcome to our Secret Garden

Black Flower Secret Garden is an artistic project by Yuri Catania who makes a tribute to his wife who takes care patiently of their private garden in the South of Switzerland in the vineyards of Merlot valley with a lake of Lugano view. Each flower has a story, born days and months before, takes time, and becomes a marvelous small and unique world. Photography is the final act of a long path and not the main purpose. The colors are bright and deep, suspended in a dreamlike and an intimate dimension. The nocturnal atmosphere is velvety making the composition elegant and conveying a sense of peace. Often some portraits are taken after the rain and so sweet drops of water make the petals and corollas of the flowers even more seductive.


Have you ever observed any flowers in the darkness?

They are beautiful and different from how we are used to seeing them in the sunlight. 

Try it, just a flashlight …
