Vibrant Flowers Delicately Complement Naturally-Toned Vintage Paper Envelopes

Kiev-based photographer Anna Remarchuk (aka @annaremarchuk) creates colorful compositions using beautiful blooms tucked inside of envelopes. Remarchuk developed this project after finding a bunch of old envelopes that belonged to her great-grandfather, as well as receiving snowdrop flowers in the mail. “At the table there were those envelopes. I saw them together and decided to make a photo,” she told the Instagram blog. This visual connection was the start of her aptly-titled #envelope_series.

The Instagram-based project features a variety of flowers, delicately arranged to appear as though they're budding from their packages. To begin her aesthetically-pleasing compositions, Remarchuk buys the flowers or gets them as gifts. She carefully considers the colors of the blooms and the envelopes' paper, making the perfect combinations and then capturing the photo on her phone. These photos, though left open to interpretation, seem to encapsulate the moment a thoughtful, splendid gift is about to be given or received, in any given situation. Ultimately, Remarchuk hopes her pairings speak to her viewers, telling Instagram, “I want my followers to be able to understand my flowers' message without any words.”
