My assignment was to capture a portrait of Gerhard Haas who has been florist for the Sydney Opera House since its official opening in 1973. He has never permitted himself to be photographed before.
I spent many hours over a number of days in the workshop understanding the light and space, the flowers and the craftsman himself. It took time to find the right equipment and technique to capture what I saw and felt.I visited an exhibition of Rembrandt and the Dutch masters from the Rijksmuseum museum in Amsterdam and found inspiration in their sense of light and space and the capturing of everyday life.
