"Harold Feinstein's gorgeous images are almost pornographic in their luscious detail. Can blossoms such as these really exist outside of dreams?"  
  
 
  
-W. Eugene Smith 
  
" "Harold Feinstein is one of the very few photographers I have known, or have been influenced by, with the ability to reveal the familiar to me in a beautifully new, strong, and honest way."  
  
 
  
Book Description 
  
" A breathtaking collection of flowers by celebrated photographer Harold Feinstein, One Hundred Flowers features over a hundred luscious portraits of dahlias, roses, anemones, poppies, pansies, orchids, tulips, azaleas, peonies, and other varieties in exquisite detail. The enormous scale of these flowers allows us to examine and explore their intricacies as never before possible in a book. These botanicals are dazzling in form and appear to, be living, breathing--in all their fragility. In hear delightful introduction to One Hundred Flowers, popular gardening author Sydney Eddison enlightens us on the elaborate structure of flowers and explains the role it plays in their reproduction. Of Feinstein's sumptuous yet quietly contemplative photographs, she writes: "While they obviously are flowers,--they have another kind of life, mystical and imperishable." Horticultural commentaries by expert Greg Piotrowski precede each floral grouping, as well as brief descriptions of the individual species, numbered to correspond to the pictures. These notes include hints about cultivation, cultural and historical facts, and colorful literary references--making the book as useful and informative as it is beautiful. Finally, a passionate essay by acclaimed critic A.D. Coleman offers insight into Harold Feinstein's work and details about his life as a master photographer and teacher. One Hundred Flowers is the perfect gift for gardeners, photographers, and anyone who delights in the beauty of flowers."
