Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe:

A dazzling, sensuous celebration of color and form by the photographer whom Architectural Digest described as "the love child of Georgia O'Keeffe and Robert Mapplethorpe."

"When I agreed to write an essay for Beane's book," recounts Anthony F. Janson, esteemed curator and professor, "I had no idea I would be writing about one of the greatest photographers I have ever run across. It was easy enough for me to locate his position in the history of photography and art as a whole. I saw its importance immediately. Such an approach hardly begins to meet the challenge of explaining his work."

With intensity, vision, and expressiveness Christopher Beane captures the beauty, and the bizarre, of the botanical. He concentrates on the overlooked detail: the veins of dehydrated petals, the textures of poppy stamens, the infinite compositions vines create, and the multiple layers that constitute a ranunculus. In 150 photographs, Flower explores the precious and perishable nature of flowers?seed pods burst open, withered leaves curl, and frilly petals unfurl. Anthony F. Janson contributes a rich and engaging overview of the core ideas that define Beane's art, offering the reader a context for thinking about this unique work, while he chronicles its development.

A thing of beauty, Flower is the gift book everyone will welcome?a testament to the remarkable talent of Christopher Beane and his passionate vision.

Umschlagtext: "When I agreed to write an essay for Beane's book, at the request of a mutual friend," recounts Anthony F. Janson, noted curator and art historian, "I had no idea I would be writing about one of the greatest photographers I have ever run across. It was easy enough for me to locate his position in the history of photography and art as a whole. I saw its importance immediately. Such an approach hardly begins to meet the challenge of explaining his work."

With intensity and vision, Christopher Beane captures the beauty, and the bizarre, of the botanical. He concentrates on the overlooked detail: the veins of dehydrated petals, the textures of poppy stamens, the infinite compositions vines create, and the multiple layers that constitute a ranunculus. Flowers are one of the most traditional subjects for artwork, yet Beane brings something radically new to his flower photographs, using his unique sensibility to create uncommon art.

In 150 color and black-and-white photographs, Flower explores the precious and perishable?seed pods burst open, withered leaves curl, and frilly petals unfurl. In the accompanying text, Anthny F. Janson chronicles the development of Beane's art, as well as offering descriptions of Bean's core ideas and an essential perspective on this unique work. Janson's overview of the flower in photography and art makes for rich and engaging reading. And Beane's "flower-stories," short bloom-ographies of individual works, provide an opportunity to witness the evolution of Beane's work as understood by the artist himself.

Flower is a thing of beauty?a testament to the remarkable talent of Christopher Beane and his passionate vision
