Two new elegant hand-made monographs by Linda Morrow showcase the artist’s stunning representation of floral photography. In the first book in her series Luminous Bloom, POPPY presents twelve black-and-white images of the Iceland poppy. Using line, form and an exquisite tonal ranged, the representations are a true sight to behold. The second book in her series, Calla is a beautiful artist book capturing the mini-calla lily in formal abstraction. The twelve black-and-white photographs showcase Morrow’s abilities to extract subtle expressions and explore deep emotion through the lily’s shape and form.
Brandgang by Herman Wouters is a curious look at unique urban corridors largely unseen from street view. Taken in several cities throughout the Netherlands, these images take note of the creativity of the people who make these small spaces their own. Rendered in beautiful color and composition, this book explores these spaces not only as a document but as a recognition of their status as places where we invent for ourselves and neighbors.
