192 pages, Col photos
In "Bloom", respected floral photographer Ron van Dongen works in colour for the first time. His bold still-lifes of richly coloured flowers on solid backgrounds delight and inspire. In sculptural images of perfect flower specimens grown in his own garden van Dongen displays a palpable devotion to the natural world. From common daisies to exotic lillies and orchids, van Dongen offers 150 colour photographs that blur the line between nature's handiwork and works of art. An introduction by the artist and a foreword by gallerist Peter Fetterman round out the work.
Ron's photographs are portraits; plants and flowers his subjects. After nurturing them from seed or spore they pose for Ron's lens when he deems the moment right. The results are a deeply personal, intimate recording of architecture, life, frailty, resolve, emotion, and sensuality. Ralph Lauren
