The Medusa series combines beautiful botanical images with the popular fascination for tragedy.

Extracts from newspapers reporting crimes were added to scientific flower illustrations that hypnotize the viewer by their beauty and details in the same way that the tragedy catches and absorbs our attention.

The series consists of groups of tragedies headlined in different newspapers from across the world: Brazilian Tragedies, American Tragedies, French Tragedies and British Tragedies.
