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 15: Serenade in Blue
Issue 15 of The Green Gallery is called Serenade in Blue. The azure, sculptural hydrangea is central to the Trendstory and Georgia O'Keeffe's abstract floral paintings shine in Portfolio. In Interview, botanical artist Kristen Alpaugh talks about how she creates perfect floral atmospheres and Muse stuns you with breathtaking summer bouquets.
Through the myth of Apollo and floral confetti we find ourselves in the world of art, with the blue flower in all its forms. We cherish Delphinium and blue orchids in grand, sky-blue and dramatic compositions. Feel the message of hope this summer and see the overwhelming beauty of all that is blue and flourishing.
