"[Chace and Llewellyn] present 343 blooms in such extraordinary detail that you feel you're glimpsing the garden from an insect's perspective."
"Seeing Flowers looks at blooms in a way you probably never have.”

Robert Llewellyn has been photographing trees and landscapes for more than forty years. His photographs have been featured in major art exhibits, and more than thirty books featuring his photography are in print, including Seeing Flowers, with Teri Dunn Chace, and Seeing Trees, one of two earlier projects with Nancy Ross Hugo. His book Washington: The Capital was an official diplomatic gift of the White House and State Department, and Remarkable Trees of Virginia, the culmination of his four-year project photographing trees, has been called “a spectacular tribute to Virginia’s native trees.” To learn more about Robert and his work, visit robertllewellyn.com.
