Emerald Rose Whipple: “Beauty recognises itself through us. It touches on the ephemeral nature of all things. When we witness something that impermanent, we witness a moment in time passing.
The fleeting fragility of life is what makes something beautiful to me. I cherish flowers, they are here only for a moment in time, yet they bring innocence and a gentleness to the world.”
