Orchids by Anna Maria Botticelli

Orchids—with more than 25,000 species—spark passion as nothing else in nature. Personages as diverse as jeweler Henri Cartier, designer Vivienne Westwood, author Susan Orlean, and thousands upon thousands of plant hunters have been seduced by their bewitching beauty, aroma, and rarity. Now master photographer Fabio Petroni has created a stunning tribute to this flower, capturing them in close-up and detailed still lifes, with irresistible charm and appeal.
