I want to present you my latest product photography, as well as the creative direction behind the new collection of hand painted silk scarves, coming from the land of the Bulgarian Rose. The task was to photograph all silk scarves to look like Roses and I think the result was lovely! Take a look:
If you want to see the whole collection of these beautiful silk scarves, here it is:
And here is the story behind each silk scarf.
This is a story about a beautiful Rose, which origin one can find in a small old country, somewhere in Europe bordering the Black Sea. She is living peacefully with her sisters in the Rose Valley in the city called Kazanluk. For over 300 years the people inhabiting the famed Valley of Roses, situated between the Balkan and Sredna Gora mountain ranges in Central Bulgaria, have grown roses and processed them into rose oil. This special oil celebrated the world over for its superb quality and unique aroma. The Rose celebrates her biggest fest in the first days of the month June each year.
She is lucky to be famous all around the world as the Bulgarian Rose. She is the Queen of all flowers. The Rose is well know for its best in the world rose oil, which is used by people in many famous perfumes, cosmetic products, as well as in the medicine. To get this rose oil, one needs to wake up as early as 5 am in the morning and collect thousands of its beautiful leaves for only one drop of this wonderful rose oil!
Once you meet her you will experience that the Queen Rose needs a lot of care and attention. She knows her high value, and this is why she is pretentious, full of vanity, elegant and fragile. She likes to be seen and show off in front of the people too. Just like the Silk Scarves.
