PORTRAITS OF FLOWERS


Peter Witte, born in Texel, the Netherlands in 1967, is a photographic artist with his roots in
photorealistic illustration and creative retouching.
He moved to Amsterdam in the late eighties, were he started building a career in creative imaging,
working with international renown photographers and art directors.
A decade later he co-founded "M*G!C"(magicgroupmedia), a postproduction-company with
a world-wide client base and worked on many prestigious campaigns and 
with numerous photographers, including Erwin Olaf, Marc Lagrange and Jimmy Nelson.
M*G!C still excists today as one of the global leaders in creative imaging.



"Initially, I wanted to photograph girls…my wife gave me some strong arguments
why the flowers we're a better option…"



For Peter it has always been second nature to document the objects that intrigued him.
He had a fascination for little creatures, bugs, insects and above all, flowers and plants.
As his eye for hidden and unrevealed beauty developed during two decades,
the need to create grew along with it and the camera soon became
the perfect tool to create these images, almost "portraits" of flowers.



"We look at most creations of nature through the glass of conditioning, we don't really see
what we're looking at. The "idea"  we have of a rose or any flower, stands in the way of a 
pure visible experience, which should result in a feeling instead of a thought."
