In this, her third and final book of up-close photographs of flowers, Ms. Bordinick was compelled to answer a challenge. She had worked in fashion all of her career and three years ago began shooting flowers when a model failed to keep an appointment and the flowers sat waiting. She began the exploration and volume I and II were published, in turn, filled with color and sensuality and a sense of dramatic architecture as only flowers can provide. In this volume she wanted to discover what was hidden beneath the flora of white. "I realized that the white flowers served as resting places‹pauses‹in an otherwise voluptuous symphony of color. Yet when photographing them, they were the ones that most captivated me," she said. Searchings: Secret Landscapes of Flowers, Volume III, explores deeply what captures the heart. Each white flower bursts forth onto the page with splashes of pigment and accents of pink, orange, green, and purple. As you journey through the pages, it is impossible not to be riveted by the peaks and valleys of nature's most exquisite forms, simultaneously virginal and passionate.
