The photo series “Wallflowers” by Saga Wendotte is about what it´s like to be young, the first and the “true” love. At first glance you might think that the photographs only are beautiful or cute, but when looking closer to them you can find the flaws and they immediately become interesting.
The titles of the photo art works “It Might Sting A Little,” “Prince Charming” and “Wither” reveals that it just might not be so perfect after alla and they help us understand that everything might not be paradise. The series shows the vulnerability and our protagonist is dressed in innocent white with a floral wreath on her head . She is followed by the frog princes, forever blooming roses, wasps as a symbol of danger, vultures waiting for clouds and explosions in the distance. Pastel wallpaper and flowers contrasting against snails and insects. Cute and beautifully is mixed with worry, anxiety, anticipation and longing.
