With an inimitable signature style of quiet elegance, photographer, artist & creative director Rich Stapleton has
Liltered the imagery of architectural, fashion, travel & automotive clients through his distilled world vista to cultivate a
markedly striking oeuvre. His atmospheric body of work has appeared in advertisements, editorials & exhibitions throughout
the world, including within his own publication, Cereal Magazine.
This submission, entitled Botany, was initially inspired by Stapleton’s fascination with the sculptural form of plants. Shot in
