here in the north, angelica grows from the ground up to 3 meters tall in a single season. this flower head, is as big as two hands. i didn’t know about angelica until i started doing STILL. now it is one one of my favorite subjects. everything about it is striking: its seductive name, its enormous size, its sturdy bamboo-like stalk, the regular branching that creates distinctive negative spaces, and of course, these enormous double-compound umbel flowers. angelica . . . i think i love you.
