The Amaryllis in full bloom at 6-8 weeks appears to explode outwards revealing the filament (the stems going into the centre of the flower), the anther (the padding holding the pollen), the style & stigma (the long tube at the bottom of the flower used for pollination & reproduction). - More detail on reproduction later. 

'Senescence' as a photographic series explores the life cycle of an Amaryllis (Hippeastrum), from bloom, to reproduction, wilting & finally death. -- 'Senescence' captures in 25 photographs, the process of life, reproduction, death & decay before new growth & is told through expressive, abstract photography that chronicles the life & death of an Amaryllis (Hippeastrum) in an intimate & poetic study. -- Senescence as a scientific term describes biological aging, the deterioration of functional characteristics & the cessation of cellular division & growth. In short, senescence is the process of functional deterioration with age & dying. -- The descriptions in this series are based on my own observations & mixed with personal, armchair research I have done on the Amaryllis (Hippeastrum) & senescence. I accept that my information may be off or misguided. Please feel free to add to or correct any of this information.

"This project is a reflection of age, deterioration & death in nature & in us all."
