Tan Kadam's “Flora” photographs seem at first factual, clear and documenting. You think you see something familiar: plants. However, despite the meticulously captured small details their authenticity is questioned. They are not located, they have (with few exceptions) no bottom, no relation to the environment, no shadow. They are exempt from time and space reference. The hyper-real effect is achieved by the manufacturing process of the photos.
