About this book

This volume represents an important selection of 116 photographs from a specific window of time and place as viewed through the camera lens of one of the greatest tropical field botanists of the 20th century. Ms. Watts has curated an impressive collection of images that not only serve to document Dr. Liogier's research but bring to light the unique way this particular scientist saw the world of plants in their environment. As Ms. Watts states, "The field photograph makes the plant’s history present and in so doing makes it relevant across time". If you are interested in where science and fine art merge, then this book is for you.
