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 9: Night Flowers
In the last edition of 2017 we present the elusive Queen of the Night, the Cereus. It flowers beautifully, only once a year, in the darkest of the night and perfumes everything with its heavenly scent. In the morning she dies and disappears just as suddenly as she came, gently kissed by the golden moon and waved goodbye by the first pale rays of warm sunshine.
What to expect further in this issue? Magical blooming mandalas, heart-warming bouquets by Lucia Milan, a sumptuous gathering, a collection of curated treasures, an astonishing contemporary interpretation by Mathilde Karrer on a painting by Jean-Pierre Cassigneul and the dark and mysterious 'black' tulip as the muse of this edition.
