When plants go POP – Victoria Ling


In a world full of normal everyday plants, some have decided to smoke some psychotropic substances and travel back to the psychedelic 60s. Or more. As Warhol said, “in the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes”. These plants want their share and they’re ready to take a chance. And if a plant asks for something we gotta respond, that’s Mother Nature’s will. That’s why we honour them with this post, for them to have their 15 minutes (actually, you can read this in 7 minutes, so I’m afraid you’ll have to read it twice).

We present you to Victoria Ling, a wonderful photographer specialist in still life. This London artist explores on her personal work how natural colour alteration affects and the visual effect that this creates. A Pantone explosion that alongside almost perfect compositions create a voilà! expression on our eyes.

On her more commercial side, Ling has worked with clients such as Volkswagen, John Lewis and Danone, with exceptional results (though less surrealistic). Moreover, she’s made collaborations with the before mentioned Anna Lo Max in projects such as Lunch Is Served, which consisted in food made out of fabric with a fantastic result even though it might sound pretty disgusting. You’ll have to read this post twice, because if there are any plants that deserve their 15 minutes of fame, those are Victoria Ling’s ones.

WARNING: If this is actually the second time you read it, stop and don’t repeat the process, we don’t want anyone to sue us for stepping into an unending loop.
