“I would fall asleep snuggled in the scent you left,” the title of one of Anna O.’s pictures. Is the self-taught photographer referring to just the flowers, or a person? Her poetically narrative titles are a trademark, giving depth to her conceptual shots of women ornamented with daisies, pom-pom hydrangeas and other blooms. They shy away from the camera (another trademark), delicate and open-hearted souls showing their emotions through their bodies and the plants they hold. “Stitched to my heart,” “memories, poems, wounds, dead flowers.”
