This is a collection of a book and 4 CDs. Flowers - mysterious is their beauty, perfection, and fragrance. With their virtuosic variety of shapes and their brilliant colours, they have long been a source of inspiration and joy. Star photographer David Hamilton presents pictures of romantic compositions of flowers in his inimitable style and emphasises their grace, elegance, and apparent immortality in an incomparable manner. Accompanied by poems and light classical music by well-known composers, "Flowers" constitutes a homage to nature's most beautiful creation.
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
David Hamilton was born in London in 1933 and lives near St. Tropez, France. After his study of architecture and design he turned to typography and layout. While he was an art director of the English magazine Queen, he bought his first camera. Later settling in Paris as art director of Printemps he began devoting himself exclusively to photography. He has worked for the best international magazines, and his work has been shown all over the world including leading centers of art culture in New, Tokyo, London, Hamburg, Milan, and Paris. He pioneered the soft focus, style which has been imitated so often and is even known as the Hamilton look.

Of all the hundreds of photography books I've acquired since the 1970s this remains one of my favorites. It's 120 pages, first published in 1990. The design of the book is simple but effective. There is one photograph per page and on the opposite page to the left is a quotation of poetry. The poets include Keats, Shelley, Shakespeare, Spenser, Tennyson, Wordsworth, Longfellow. There are 56 total photographs, all created with color film.
For most of his career Mr. Hamilton has been a proponent of pictorialism. Many art critics disparage this aesthetic, especially in photography. Without apologies photographer David Hamilton has embraced a soft focus technique to image rendering. This book is testimony to his conviction that photographs should be more aligned to branches of painting as opposed to the sharp focus approach of the f64 movement in photography begun in the late 1920s which more or less sounded the death knell for the pictorialist photographers. Pictorialism had previously been popular and accepted.
There are no hard-edged detailed representations of floral compositions in this book. There are wonderful images of muted colors of flowers that now have long faded, decayed, and disappeared from our world. Mr. Hamilton uses an uncomplicated technique of lighting his subjects with only natural light. The flowers are posed against neutral backgrounds that never upstage or distract from their natural beauty. Some are placed in vases.
There is transitory beauty and melancholy inherent in all living things. Mr. Hamilton recognizes that simplicity can be the best approach to depicting beauty.
Photography has been a debatable art form since its inception in the 1830's. A medium so accessible today to nearly everyone via digital captures makes it even more difficult for some to appreciate sensitivity or an acumen for composition. David Hamilton has pursued his vision of what photography is to him since the early 1970s. His approach is neither wrong nor right. It is an individualistic statement that he unapologetically presents to the world.
If you prefer sharply focused studio representations of still-lifes you will likely not appreciate this book. These images of flowers are more romantically depicted in diffused soft colors lit only by direct or indirect natural sunlight. Mr. Hamilton has offered us a world of simple beauty if we only will take some time to stop and enjoy.
