SUNOGRAPHY

A quick introduction to Sunshine’s macro flower photography. She sees her photographs as pieces of art, abstract art made by nature. Just like a painting, every flower is an original piece at that moment in time, and she tries to capture it in all its splendor.

In 2011 seven of her photographs were chosen to be a part of The Bellagio Hotel and Casino $70 million guest room remodel. Her photographs are in the guest coridoors on floors 4-28. A year later, the new Spa Tower also features her photographs in its guest coridoors as well. Click here to read more about the renovation details.
