For his photo book 'Flower', British photographer Maxwell ANDERSON collected photographs with flowers over a period of six years. He was interested in the everyday relationship between people and flowers, the attraction they exert, and the use of flowers as fashion accessories.
In 'Flower', Maxwell ANDERSON combines his snapshots of common flowers with equally common and often inane human interpretations and interactions with them. The book is three hole sewn, bound in a textured, fibrous cover material which emulates pressed flowers, wrapped by a yellow partial sleeve with clear foil blocking on the front.
"Flower, however, is anything but inane. It is a small delight of a photo-book, bound in brilliant pink card and covered with a fine thread evocative of pressed flowers, so tactile that holding the book is akin to taking a velvety rose petal between your fingertips. The variety of images inside is also part of its charm, as almost every spread comprises of a flower – in natural and unnatural settings alike – juxtaposed with blooms as a favourite motif in fashion. Think of this lovely publication as a reminder to notice examples in the world, regardless of where you find yourself." (© Belle Hutton, AnOther Magazine)
