Enlightened Blooms: Solarized Diptych Floral Photographs by Brad Oliphant

Forward by Russell Hart

Tulipa ‘Black Parrot’ | Parrot Tulip

Brad Oliphant has had a camera in hand for forty years. Even as a child climbing trees on the family horse ranch, capturing birds and the magic of newborn colts, he was ready for the action and beauty he saw through an artists eyes. Later as a fashion and commercial photographer, he found that he had a  need for more adventure, and turned to nature, finding  flowers to photograph in a most unique and incredible way.

In this book, Brad desired and has succeeded in presenting to us, from an array of thousands of floral images taken, diptychs of flowers in a uniquely new perspective. These few chosen images cannot begin to convey the beauty and enchantment of this book. After a long winter, what could be more satisfying and awe- inspiring than to page through hundreds of flowers that glow from within with an almost indescribable magic.

Nymphaea odorata | Water Lily

Amaryllis belladonna | Amaryllis

Malus domestica | Apple Tree

Dahlia hortensis | Dahlia ‘Red and White’

 Tulipa ‘Rococo’ | Parrot Tulip
