ENLIGHTENED BLOOMS: SOLARIZED DIPTYCH FLORAL PHOTOGRAPHS -- BRAD OLIPHANT. Russell Hart. Glitterati Incorporated, New York, 2015. Distributed by Antique Collectors' Club, Easthampton. 164 pp. with 117 ills. (109 col.). 25 x 32 cm. ISBN 9780990380832 In English.
Publisher's description: In this exquisite collection of fine art photography, Brad Oliphant presents a distinctive new body of work--pairs of flower images transformed through the process of solarization. Moving beyond the pastel palette of traditional flower photography, Oliphant has imbued these blooms with exuberant color, breathing new life into a time-honoured subject matter. Side by side in stunning symmetry, these flowers are radiant - their glowing silhouettes, silver hues, and spectacularly distorted colors reminiscent of expressionist paintings. In an increasingly fast-paced world, the "Enlightened Blooms" encourage us to pause and pay attention to the beauty that surrounds us. While paying homage to a subject matter rich with symbolic and cultural significance, Oliphant makes us feel as if we are seeing flowers for the very first time. In their transformed states, these flowers beg to be lingered over, their forms contemplated, their very existence revered as a miraculous gift.
