Our most amazing design PIC, Karen, pointed us to a fab photographer yesterday, Paul Lange. A local to New York's Hudson Valley, he made a case study of his work at the garden's of his floral enthusiast friend, Zeze. For 7 years, Lange photographed his delicate subjects without it's normal surroundings, letting these gorgeous blooms take center stage in large scale prints. My favorite is the IRIS, for sentimental purposes I guess. My mother used to cut Iris's from the side of our home and wrap the stems in tin foil to give to my teachers at school. I know, total brown-noser, right?
Lange also has a collection of birds and landscapes, but to Karen's point, the Big Blooms collection is hands down, the cream of the crop... No pun intended.
