Monochromia Botanica is the first bookby Indonesian photographer Benny Asrul. While living in Singapore, Arsul spent a lot of time in Singapore Botanic Garden, escaping intensity of the city and photographing flowers, plants, insects. The book is a collection of black and white images: intimate and meditative. Unusual photographs of flowers, leaves, water drops, butterflies paired with such captions as “Melancholy”, “Inspire”, “Curves”, “Desolation” create certain tranquility and dynamic.
