The Art of Travis Chantar
Travis Chantar is a Brooklyn-based artist who identifies as a mixed race queer individual. His photographic series Flowers, recently highlighted by Elle magazine, seeks to contrast the strength of the human body with the delicacy of nature.
Notes Elle: “Chantar, originally from the mountains of Idaho, fostered his fascination with flowers and plants as a child. Drawn to their patterns and details, he used to dissect them in his garden. He worked this interest into his photography and uses the ritual of placing the petals on his subjects to develop a level of intimacy.”
