Publisher Comments:

One of the most extraordinary flower photography books to come along in years, Flowers is a rare visual and tactile presentation. Sixty-four wondrous photographic portraits of pale pink roses, garnet-red magnolias, vividly hued gerberas, brightly colored poppies, and many other magical flowers herald the delicacy and sensuality, of nature's most dramatic flora. Emphasizing space, form, and balance. Flowers explores the idea of flowers as natural sculpture, as intricate, bold, individual pieces of art. it is printed on an exceptional heavy cream paper stock — exquisite to the touch — which gives the photographs a rich, almost three-dimensional feel. With these portraits, photographer Haruhito Wako has combined high-contrast imagery with a refined crispness of detail for a shock of color that is radiant in its beauty. Nature's flowers may be fleeting, but Flowers is one coveted blossom that's here to stay.

Book News Annotation:

A distinctive collection of flower images--photos that seem like paintings. Each image is of a single flower, with no background except the creamy color of the paper stock. The impact is stunning--a subtle exploration of form, gesture, and color. There's no text beyond identification of the type of flower in each portrait.
