Variegation: Photo Series by Tom Leighton

Published Mar 31, 2021

Gorgeous new series by UK-based photographer Tom Leighton.

“The series Variegation is inspired by the nightlife of foliage, a glimpse of what we might see if our night vision had truly evolved. After the sun fades, the process of photosynthesis stops and respiration begins. Plants begin to burn their stored sugars and breathe back in some of the precious oxygen they have created. Growth continues, under the cloak of darkness, with careful calibration of the rate at which the plant’s fuel reserves are burnt.

The colours I have used in this series represent the light absorbed within the structure of the plants and its conversion to energy. The title Variegation refers to to the multiple colours across a plant’s leaves or stems – representing the levels of chlorophyll in the plant which directly affects its gathering and burning of energy.”
