BEYOND THE FRAME
German-born, Auckland-based photographer Frank Schwere’s latest work, ironically named Nothing Lasts Forever, ensures that this particular bouquet of flowers will endure. In his new series, bright flowers and bees are symbols of renewal. The darkness, dead bees and fallen petals are symbols of death… and thus goes the cycle. Frank’s work is a commentary on the importance of the environment and, in this case, draws attention to the bees and their vital role as pollinators.
