Samenvatting

Samenvatting
Richard Fischer is a contemporary Karl Blossfeldt An art book that presents key themes of nature and species conservation Fifty percent of the world's flower species are threatened with extinction. Each year, numerous flowers disappear from the face of the Earth without ever being documented. Indeed, many of these natural beauties remain as yet unknown to humankind. Photographer Richard Fischer can be regarded as an ambassador for flowers. For many years, he has staged graceful and endangered floral specimens in his photo studio, capturing the uniqueness and transience of each flower. In collaboration with the world's leading botanical gardens, his strikingly original images provide the flowers with an aesthetic framework in which their power of expression and majesty remain intact. Fischer's precise, yet delicate floral compositions record the unique color, form, and texture of each flower, while signaling to the extraordinary beauty, diversity, and fragility of the natural world. Fischer's inimitable flower photographs have bestowed him with exhibitions around the world: In Paris, London and Tokyo, at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, and the renowned China Academy of Art in Hangzhou. Richard Fischer prints are much sought after collector's items in the art photography market and calendars of his flower images appear annually. Now, for the first time, Richard Fischer brings together his best pictures spanning 15 years in one flower photography book, showcasing his artwork and little-known floral exotica. Throughout the volume, the photographs are accompanied by informative and captivating texts, leading the reader through an unknown and dwindling world of flowers. RICHARD FISCHER was born in 1951 in Manila, the Philippines, and studied photography in Mannheim and Munich. He has run his own photography studio since 1978, currently in the South of France. His flower photography has brought him numerous exhibitions and prizes, and his prints are highly esteemed in the photographic art market.
