    Silver in Fine Art / Still Life

The Pink Lotus is one of the most beautiful flowers in the world, and is remarkably unique as it grows from a murky pond full of mud. The purity and rebirth of something so beautiful and pure in an environment of impurity is a true juxtaposition that symbolises how we can find beauty in all sorts of places. Initially the intention was to take the photo with the lotus full of life and vigor. However, finding beauty in something that has already aged and withered provides a stronger and more striking meaning, as it represents the passage of time.

Monthira takes inspiration from the world around her in her photography endeavors and further views photography as a personal and intimate necessity to express herself. Monthira predominantly focuses on the fine art and still life subject matter where she has created exceptional photography outcomes.Monthira sees beauty in everything around her whether it be the beauty in nature or the innate character of every person and truly wishes to continue her passion in photography as to pursue personal development and to be recognized as an exceptional artist.
