Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Gorgeous.... The most amazing photos of flowers you've ever seen." -- PopSci.com

"Extraordinary.... Photographer Andrew Zuckerman has consistently managed to captivate the imagination and stir the soul.... He now brings his singular lens to nature's most vibrant and whimsical flora with Flower - a collection of mesmerizing, luminous close-ups of more than 150 species, making the familiar sparkle with newfound curiosity and shedding scintillating light on the exotic." -- Brain Pickings

"Zuckerman's sumptuous style, evident in two other of his Chronicle efforts, Creature and Bird, is to place up-close, colorful subjects within a pure white field, revealing all the wonders of color and structure and identity." -- Publishers Weekly

"The hyper-realism feels astonishing, painterly. Each image occupies a full page, set off against a blank opposing page. From the cover shot of an orange and yellow spider chrysanthemum to the mystery of a closed hibiscus to a heavy tangle of cannabis, each shot demands we look. Sustenance for the gardener in winter." -- Cleveland Plain Dealer

"A spectacular printed bouquet...one ravishing blossom after another." -- Philadelphia Inquirer

"Andrew Zuckerman, who assembled and photographed scores of flowers against blank backdrops in Flower (Chronicle, $75), sees -- and allows us to see -- colors, shapes and gestures that we'd never have imagined before. The sterile settings allow these flowers (sometimes buds, sometimes blooms) to explode from the page." -- Denver Post

"Andrew Zuckerman sets into vibrant relief the astonishing variety of botanical beauties in Flower...a celebration of color, dizzying form and natural wonder.... To contemplate the 150 species gorgeously pictured here - to get lost in their bewildering delicacy, radiance and extravagant weirdness - is to tap into the essence of individuality." -- NPR.org

"An astonishing visual feast." -- The Daily Beast
