    Full Description

    Floral is an impressive coffee-table book that aims to archive the biodiversity of our planet, because climate change is now threatening every second plant species. To record the uniqueness and beauty of our nature for posterity, botanical gardens and photographer Richard Fischer have launched an unprecedented art project.
    At the peak of their life cycle, Fischer photographs the plant with a sophisticated macro technique in his studio. To do this, he uses special light that brings out the filigree structures of his floral photographic model particularly well. 
    The result is outstanding photographs that leave the viewer in rapt amazement, for we have never perceived nature in this way. Richard Fischer presents himself as a Master of Fine Art Photography and creates close-ups of blossoms and flowers that seem almost mystically alien at first glance. The photographer has not simply done nature photography for the illustrated book Floral. His works are art. In the close-ups, every little hair and every vein of leaf becomes visible. The plants appear transparent and yet in bright colours. 

    Text in English and German.
