In this beautifully creative series titled Mimesis Paris-based photographer Seb Janiak combines photos of insect wings together to create this illusion that they are blooming flowers. Janiak is fascinated by the way in which small insects and animals adapt their colour and textures in order to blend into their surroundings.
In order to create these photo-mashups of different insect wings Janiak visits old antique stores in search of old examples of taxidermy. Once he finds suitable pieces he photographs them at an extremely high resolution before using digital editing software to arrange them into a montage that resembles the budding petals of a flower.
