Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and with these portraits, Howard Bjornson has uncovered the natural beauty that persists right in our own backyards. Sixty-four stunning photographic portraits of common dandelion, evening primrose, sunflower, and many other unwanted plants herald the grace and loveliness of nature's most resilient, free-spirited creatures. Accompanied by both their common and Latin names, as well as inspirational quotes on rich vellum pages, these sumptuous photos are the perfect gift for the gardener who has everything.
About the Author
Howard Bjornson has run his own photography studio in Chicago since 1980. His work has been exhibited in several shows and, most recently, in the 1999 Communication Arts Photo Annual. He has discovered through the creation of this book that one needn't travel the world to find untamed natural beauty--most of the weeds for this collection were gathered within a few miles from his studio.
