Editorial Reviews

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