Andrew Zuckerman’s Extraordinary Portraits of Flowers
By Maria Popova
Thanks to his ethos of curiosity and rigor as the key to creativity, photographer Andrew Zuckerman has consistently managed to captivate the imagination and stir the soul with his crisp portraits of nature’s creatures, celebrated musicians, and our era’s most beloved elders. He now brings his singular lens to nature’s most vibrant and whimsical flora with Flower (public library) — 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.
Here is but a tiny taste — though it’s worth noting the screen does Zuckerman’s lush, rich artwork absolutely no justice.
