Janine Riviere captures one of many beautiful sights on the island of Mauritius
Janine Riviere, a doctoral candidate in history, took this photo in December at the SSR Botanical Garden in Mauritius. The gardens are famous for their giant water lilies (victoria amazonica), whose leaves can grow to three metres wide. Riviere spent a lot of time taking digital and film photos to catch these blooms from many different perspectives — the flowers only last two days.

Riviere became seriously involved in photography in 2009, and now “never leaves home without a camera.” She prefers landscape, nature, night photography and macro. “I am seeking to develop my own style intuitively rather than deliberately, and to avoid emulating others as much as possible,” she says.
