Parker Fitzgerald | on Tumblr (USA) - Overgrowth

Parker Fitzgerald is a traveling photographer currently living in Portland, Oregon. He enjoys Japan, Lord of the Rings, Polaroid, Kodak film, and Legend of Zelda.

Overgrowth is his new and ongoing artistic collaboration with floral designer Riley Messina (Erba Floral Studio). Inspired by a pursuit of beauty, Riley combines classically thoughtful botanical designs with Parker’s carefully considered film images in an expression of the multifaceted relationship between humankind and nature. The two artists contrast anonymous portraiture with sweeping landscapes in an attempt to capture both the malleable and untamed aspects of the natural world.

The Lenton Rose — Black Diamond Helleborus has a bold slate purple to near-black blossom that measures 2-21/2 inches across. The petals of Helleborus ‘Black Diamond’ turn a shade of slate green after setting seed, continuing visual interest. The foliage emerges purple in the early spring and matures to a beautiful shade of green.


Flower petals explode as if from a volcano over a town in Costa Rica because clearly this should have happened years ago everywhere.
