Shouldn't faceplant fashion photography be more of a thing? It seems the only established practitioner at this point is Italian photographer Sandro Giordano with exposure through Hint Fashion Magazine and his own extensive Instagram page of the project.
I even googled "face plant" separating the face from the plant, but that seems to bring up photography with plants very close or on faces, some looking a little colonialistic for my taste.
So I tried a few myself, although my subject, understandably, wasn't completely willing, (and with a very basic camera, and limited at home supplies ...) but I promise I'll try again.

As part of the Struggle and Hope documentary project on Oklahoma's still surviving historical all-black towns, this video is about Summit, Oklahoma, right outside Muskogee, a church, its people and history. The town was a haven after the Civil War, struggled during the drug epidemic of the 1980s, but is now slowly reviving. Its often untold history keeps living though, through its industrious, accomplished and very proud residents.
