Every Leaf and Petal

Andrew Zuckerman’s passion flower.

Swooning this morning over images from Andrew Zuckerman’s photography book Flower, showcasing his  masterful minimalistic images of exotic and not so exotic blooms. He pictures are as lush as those of Robert Mapplethorpe or Georgia O’Keefe, though he arranges his shots without any of their artistic commentary, with his goal to simply get out of the way to show each flower at its best. Of course, I had to include his image of the mysterious Dahlia, as celebrated in Encyclopedia of the Exquisite.
