Flora Photographica: The Flower in Contemporary Photography by William A. Ewing (Author), Danaé Panchaud (Author)
Vivid, colorful, and spectacular: a lush and definitive overview showcasing the masterworks of flower photography by the world’s leading photographers.Featuring two hundred works, Flora Photographica links the very best of flower photography from the past twenty years with its predecessors ― canonical floral images from the realms of photography, illustration, and painting that have marked the collective imagination.
Works by contemporary photographers such as David LaChapelle, Valérie Belin, Viviane Sassen, and Martin Schoeller appear across ten thematic chapters, among them “Origins,” “Arrangements,” “Essence,” “Persona,” and “Reverie,” which also include a brief introduction to the particular topic. These are complemented by two in-depth essays by authors William Ewing and Danaé Panchaud, which explore the relationship between contemporary works and the rich traditions of floral art and photography.
Vibrant and abundant with various species of flora, this stunning book is both a celebration of beauty and a study of form, making it a must-have publication for lovers of flowers and photography alike.
