Dramatic Botanicals by David Leaser
While on a photographic assignment in the Amazon, David Leaser was inspired by the intricate detail in the small flowers on the floor of the rainforest. Using technology employed by NASA on Mars, his Nightflowers collection of dramatic botanical images offers extremely high resolution closeups of botanicals which are called dettagli.
These are botanicals as they’ve never been seen before. By zooming in to macro range, the viewer can explore the extreme detail ever-present in nature that is often overlooked. Leaser says of his work, “My art is a way for me to capture the beauty of nature and bring it indoors to enjoy forever. Many of the subjects in my work have a lifespan of a day or two, so this is my way to immortalize these beautiful things.” They certainly are magnificent. Flowers and landscapes are beautiful in any interior, particularly classical, and his technique brings a fresh look so perfect for today. David is working on some new collections, including flowers with a white background, which can be previewed on his Facebook page.
This collection has received accolades from critics and the press. Nightflowers won the Silver Medal at the International Photography Awards, amidst more than 8,000 entries, and Sunset Magazine awarded the collection its highest honor, “The West at its Best.” Nikon World Magazine is doing a feature on David and the photo process he uses in their Fall 2012 issue.
Next week David is releasing a new Signature Edition which will be available for all the images currently on his site. The edition will be limited to 250 impressions, printed on 16″ x 20″ archival paper, unframed and hand signed by the artist for $300. He is extending to Classical Addiction readers a special 20% discount. Enter “classicaladdiction” in the coupon section of the shopping cart.
