The Flower Series was created with a hand-made pinhole camera using 4x5 inch black and white film using several different Wratten filters over the pinhole during exposure and is simply a discovery of the aesthetic beauty and golden rations in each flower. This is entirely an analog process, no Photoshop was used in any of these photographs. After the exposure, the negative is solarised during development revealing Mackie lines around the flowers.

 
The prints are made on either silver chlorobromide baryta fibre based paper or photo sensitised linen using a lithographic developer which yields its unique colour and granularity due to the fibres of the paper being revealed in the surface image itself.

About Robert Mann: In 1989, with an international reputation in photography and photographic printing, Robert moved to Paris France where he now resides. Robert has published several photographic processes and his darkroom is on the cover of the renowned book “The New Darkroom Handbook” and featured inside. He currently uses pinhole cameras exclusively to achieve his ethereal images and continues to print privately for a select group of photographers while producing his own works for gallery and museum exhibitions. Recently Robert has been working with Brad Pitt, first producing his story of Angelina Jolie for W Magazine and continues printing Pitt's massive archive of negatives. Pitt has thus become a collector of Mann’s work purchasing eleven prints from the “Orbit Series” and “Flower Series”.
