In BOTANICA, award-winning photographer Howard Schatz puts an entirely new twist on the age-old tradition of depicting flowers in art.
Add to Wish List
The flowers in BOTANICA emanate colors and textures so rich
that you'll be tempted to lift them off the page. Some of
the close-up images are eye-popping in their extreme
detail, while others are kaleidoscopic compositions of
synesthetic color. From the exotic – angel's trumpets,
passionflowers, and pincushions – to the familiar – lilies,
roses, and begonias – the flowers Schatz photographs have
never looked quite like this before, and yet it is their
natural beauty that shines through every page of this
sumptuous, oversize volume. Annotations at the back of the
book, accompanied by miniature reproductions of the full-
page plates, identify each variety and provide both common
and Latin names. Schatz's unique presentation and
photographic style make this a compelling gift for both
flower lovers and connoisseurs of fine photography.
