What’s better than a thick coffee table book replete with page after full-page spread of shameless petal porn? How about this same book, all of whose photos are available for your viewing pleasure online? Unheard of! Andrew Zuckerman can do that sort of thing, of course, because even (especially) after having seen them on the web, you’ll want to rush out and get the book just to press your face against these hyper-real, larger-than-life prints. That is, if you’re anything like me.
“Flower” is a photographic exploration of the vast variety of strange and beautiful flowers, using a macro lens and a minimalist approach in order to make the mundane look strange and the strange look downright bizarre. I was contemplating a copy as this month’s giveaway, but there are so many things I want to offer! What do you think? Would you be interested in a copy of Flower? Do I even need to ask?
