Publisher's Description

Inside this unique book lie some of the finest and most notable works in garden making and land art along side many new discoveries by journalist and photographer Allan Pollok-Morris.

Picture of Earthward
Publisher's Description
The Earthwards pictures started by chance, when Steve Pyke was watching a gardener at work with his garden fork, and was struck by its simple beauty. Photographed at Great Dixter in East Sussex, England – home of the late Christopher Lloyd – garden tools are presented here as a celebration of the way things wear and how, over time and with use, they become seemingly “rounder.” Some of these tools were those used in the actual creation of the gardens, which were mostly designed by Edwin Lutyens almost a century ago. Their handles and prongs are beautifully worn, perfectly in keeping with the hard work and dedication involved in the making of this universally admired landscape. So much of what we see in the workplace today is about distancing ourselves from the end result of our labors; these garden tools, although depicted on their own, against a pale backdrop, convey an intense sense of physical engagement. British-born Steve Pyke, now based in New York, has had a prolific and successful career working with many of the world’s leading magazines. Our third book with the artist, Earthwards is published to coincide with an exhibition of the work at Great Dixter in Winter 2008.

Picture of Aurora
Publisher's Description
Perhaps the most recognized and widely-collected photographer of botanical studies working today, Ron van Dongen’s recent shift to color work was documented in our previous monograph, Effusus, which was published in 2005 and has since sold out. We are pleased to announce his follow-up book, Aurora, presenting 33 gorgeous new plates printed – as with all of his Nazraeli Press monographs – in an oversized format bound in Japanese cloth. This new work adds to the Dutch photographer’s long and skilled study of flora in its many incarnations. Ron van Dongen’s work has been the subject of ten monographs, and is widely exhibited and collected throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. It has been featured in such publications as Provacateur, Foto Nederland, Martha Steward Living, and Bloom. “This is superb formal photography, a melding of elegant observation with attention to form and fragility, and yielding the deep beauty that arises from such single-minded observation: a precise observation of the physical world, whose precision invokes both the sensual and the spiritual.” — Katherine R. Lieber, ArtScope.net

Picture of Flora Photographica - Masterpieces of Flower Photography From 1835 to the Present
Publisher's Description
Flora Photographica is a striking and extravagantly designed book. Each bloom shown here has been observed with that acuity of vision which only the most sensitive artist-photographers can bring to bear.

Here are Mapplethorpe’s tulips, half-metal, half-living creatures; Steichen’s delphiniums, preserved in an everlasting summery perfection of blues and pinks; Atget’s open-air profusion of poppies; Cunningham’s magnolia, richly fertile and lush; Man Ray’s surreal yet pure calla lily; Chris Enos’s dying poinsettia, its colours curdling in decay.

These are masterpieces of photographic art, in an astonishing range of media, from photography’s beginnings up to the present day. Full details of the techniques and processes used are elucidated in the introduction and commentaries by the acclaimed photo-historian William A. Ewing, but, above all, here are flowers as we have never seen them before.

Picture of Opis Opis
Publisher's Description
Following the success of our previous three oversized monographs by Ron van Dongen, we are delighted to announce this fourth publication of his gorgeous, large-scale botanical still lifes. Superbly printed in duotone, hardbound, and covered in Japanese green cloth, Ops Opis presents a new selection of the artist’s utterly seductive images. The focal point of van Dongen’s lens ranges from the mouth-wateringly perfect bunch of grapes, to the glorious exuberance of ?owers in full bloom and the daintier, more demure ?oral specimens. He shows us that plants are delicate and resourceful, decorative and essential, and temptingly tactile while commanding respect. But perhaps above all, he presents them as things of great beauty to linger over and enjoy. Born in Venezuela, Ron van Dongen grew up in Holland, where he studied Health Science and Biology before moving on to study Photography in San Francisco. He now lives in Portland, Oregon, where he grows and nurtures the plants that he so elegantly portrays. Van Dongen’s work has been widely exhibited in the United States, Europe and Asia, and is housed in many important collections worldwide. Introduction and interview with the artist by Jane Jackson.
