Back in the day when Alexey Brodovitch was still the art director at Harper’s Bazaar, he told the then young up-and-coming photographer Richard Avedon: 'Astonish me.'
We think that’s the best advice ever. We have taken these words to heart in creating the online magazine The Green Gallery, in which we celebrate the beauty of flowers and plants. We hope to surprise you, excite you, tickle you and bring you enjoyment whilst also amazing you and moving you to wonder.
The magazine has been produced in collaboration with creative spirits such as photographers from Vogue, W Magazine and Kinfolk, stylists from Elle Deco, and leading and up-and-coming artists and bloggers who shape the zeitgeist. They’re all international fans of flowers and plants.
Issue 5: Golden Treasures
The diversity of flowers and plants continues to astonish and inspire us. Alongside sumptuous greenery, seductive trunks and waving colourful leaves, there’s even more on offer. Golden treasures that transport you. To the roaring Twenties, fur-filled wishlists and all the beauty of Mother Nature.
The end of the year issue of The Green Gallery celebrates the beauty of what has always been. Opening flower hearts, warm colours, lavish profusion and the delicate Physalis. You might have noticed these gifts from nature before, but we also put the spotlight on creatives with an eye for greenery. Be transported to plant-filled artistic spaces full of mysterious floral bouquets, and take time to ponder Roberta Bailey’s beautiful flower portraits.
It promises to be an issue which celebrate the true gold: Nature.
