Chrysanthemum in Asia represents life and rebirth. In Japan it is called Kiku, the flower that symbolizes royalty, longevity, and rejuvenation, and used as the Imperial Family Emblem.
White Chrysanthemum stands for loyalty and devoted love. So committed and dedicated that only eternal rest can bring the feeling to an end; thus, a flower that also used in funeral.
This White Chrysanthemum in a Giorgio Bonaguro designed Serax glass carafe was photographed on a Kodak 400 TX 35mm film using Leica M6 with Elmarit 28mm on 12th October 2020 and developed on the same day.
