Tulips have been a source of fascination for centuries. Taking cues from the rigorous clarity and objectivity of the Düsseldorf School photographers and drawing inspiration from the subtle poetry of nature, German photographer
Sabine Pankert has created extraordinary photographs that truly capture the majesty of this almost mythical flower. Following a single bunch of tulips as it passes through time, the twenty-eight lyrical images in this beautifully produced volume document the changes that result from life's design.
The book begins with a poem, "Stages" by Hermann Hesse, and then shuns further text allowing the viewer to be captivated by the visual narrative traced by the sumptuous photographs. This book will be treasured not only by flower enthusiasts, gardeners, and photo book aficionados but also by anyone who is experiencing life's changes.
