What a pretty damn gorgeous way to bring in the end of the week. “FOLIA” is the result of two highly visual creative’s getting together to “jam”. Talented and experienced interiors and prop stylist, Vanessa Colyer Tay created this collection of beautiful still lives with her long time collaborator; photographer Sam McAdam – Cooper.  “Their works celebrate the fleeting beauty of temporary life by focusing on the dishevelled textures of wilting blooms and foliage.” – I thought that the work perfectly!
