Mapplethorpe Flora: The Complete Flowers
picture
Features:-
The definitive collection of Robert Mapplethorpe's flower photographs Robert Mapplethorpe (1946-1989) is one of the twentieth century's most important artists, known for his groundbreaking and provocative work. He studied painting, drawing, and sculpture in Brooklyn in the 1960s and started taking photographs when he acquired a Polaroid camera, in 1970. Beginning in 1973 and until his death in 1989, Mapplethorpe explored the flower with extraordinary dedication, using a range of photographic processes - from Polaroids to dye-transfer color works. In carefully constructed compositions, he captured roses, orchids, snapdragons, daisies, tulips and other species - both common and rare - and forever transformed the way we perceive a classic and familiar subject. The result - a stunning body of work - is collected in this elegant book, Mapplethorpe Flora: The Complete Flowers.

The Story of Kew Gardens In Photographs
picture
Features:-
In 1837, Daguerre developed his eponymous process, opening the doors to modern photography. Around the same time, the once-neglected Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, found itself the focus of renewed interest and rapid expansion. The renaissance at Kew and revolution in photography are inextricably linked, as professional photographers and casual tourists alike have been capturing pieces of Kew s history for more than one hundred years, marking its development one frame at a time. "The Story of Kew Gardens in Photographs" brings together two hundred and fifty of those photographs to tell the tale of these magnificent gardens. "The Story of Kew Gardens in Photographs" covers the period from 1844 to the 1970s, ending as another advance, color photography, was taking hold. Featuring many rarely seen photographs, the collection provides a fascinating look at the botanical and social history of the gardens. The black-and-white images show a remarkable transformation in the growth and expansion of the gardens. The photographs also illustrate the importance of plants in the British Empire and how Kew became one of the most important botanical institutions in the world. This engrossing book provides a glimpse of British history from the days of vacationing royalty to the great Victorian plant hunters, through two world wars and millions of visitors."
