5.0 out of 5 stars White and the Absence of Color in Flowers, July 1, 2006
By 
This review is from: Searchings: Secret Landscapes of Flowers, Volume III (Hardcover)
Barbara Bordnick has released her third volume of floral photography and for this viewer this volume is the strongest. Abandoning the luxuriant color she explored so beautifully in Volumes I and II, in Volume III Bordnick pauses with the subtle and quiet beauty of flowers that are white.

For centuries, gardeners and landscape designers have known that the presence of white in the mass of color in the garden creates a resting place of the eye as well as a focal point for exploring the myriad colors that are found in nature. In this volume of close-ups of flowers and all of their parts, Bordnick concentrates on white flowers only - and the results are a stunning portfolio of images that, though white in emphasis, allow us to appreciate the subtle variations the flowers display as they reach for pink, for green, for gentle suggestions of color while they bask in the beauty of natural white.

For the true flower lover all three of Barbara Bornick's series SEARCHINGS: SECRET LANDSCAPES OF FLOWERS are a must. But this Volume III holds a special place in the arena of flowers as art: the imagery is so pure that our eyes can find the subtleties her camera only suggests. Grady Harp, July 06
