Flower Lines: Beautiful New Photographs by Alva Bernadine

British photographer Alva Bernadine is no stranger to our magazine. We’ve featured his “Succubus” and “Reflect Upon This” series before, both of which are provocative for the ways in which they fragment and distort the body. However, in his newest series, titled “Flower Lines,” Bernadine has highlighted the beauty and curiosity of the body in a softer and simpler way: by lining the curves and creases of the models with fresh blossoms. Suddenly, the spaces between arms and legs and along the sides of the torso become colorful garlands, accentuating the radiance of the skin and the symmetry of the body parts.
