“It seems the age-old relationship between Woman and Flowers will continue to exist in the 21st century. Who isn´t familiar with the concept that a woman is like a flower? Woman have roots, blossom but also wilt away … The close-up view offers both a detailed insight into the individual characteristics of the blossoms and of the photographed woman, who disappear, however, into the anonymity of the close-up. The flowers are reduced to a play of lines and colors, to hues of light and shade, so that a fascination emerges from the folds and curves … Försterling subtly inserts the folds of the female organs into the blossoms, so that the flower portraits glow suggestively from within and exude a sensuous power…” Natalie Scheerle-Walz
