Introducing Botanical by Samuel Zeller

Featuring over 100 photographs taken in cities across Europe, Botanical by Samuel Zeller is the latest publication from our east London neighbours, Hoxton Mini Press. His photographs reveal a rare serenity found at the heart of some of Europe’s most popular locations. Shot in botanical gardens in Paris, Geneva, Edinburgh, Prague and many more, these fascinating images of plants seen through translucent glass echo a blurred beauty reminiscent of Impressionist paintings.

Zeller travelled to over 25 cities whilst shooting the series. His resulting images, now curated edit in book form, draw on classic botanical illustrations from the 19th century and show nature in a new and contemporary way.


Samuel Zeller is a Swiss fine art photographer whose work reflects a lifelong love of art, influenced by his parents, both artists, and his previous career in graphic design. He pursues personal projects as well as commercial and editorial photography for clients such as Monocle.

Hoxton Mini Press is a small East London publisher dedicated to bringing beautiful photo books to a wider audience.

Botanical, published 26 April 2018, is available now from Hoxton Mini Press, £16.95.
