This simple and elegant book is a feast for the eyes. Featuring more than sixty full color close-ups of flowers on beautiful heavy colored paper stock, it is a pleasure to flip through. Wako, the photographer, combined his efforts with those of designer and flower stylist Kawai to produce the book. 'Flowers' contains absolutely no text, but the sheer strength and clarity of the images more than makes up for this. The quality of the images is tremendous: the colors are so sharp and clear, the flowers seem to be hovering just able the pages.
Pale pink roses, garnet-red magnolias, vividly hued gerberas, brightly colored poppies. Photographer Haruhito Wako combines high-contrast imagery with crispness of detail for a shock of color that is absolutely radiant. The book is printed on heavy cream paper which gives the photographs a rich, almost three-dimensional feel. There are no words in FLOWERS. As in nature, their face is their voice; each petal a gesture, each hue a declaration, each dark heart a poem. 64 color photos.
