Coconut Palm: A Creative Exploration By Khamal Boyce
Coconut Palm: A Creative Exploration This project is a creative exploration using elements from the natural environment and incorporating them into photography. The primary element used in this project is the coconut palm. This project also comprises macro-photos of textures and parts of the coconut tree.
Where it all started The photo below was the initial idea that started the whole project. In my mind I imagined someone peeking through blinds made of coconut leaves. After I created this image I decided to push the concept further.
Here, the palm leaf is used as a garment for portraiture
