Pauline Lamont-Fisher

This book is a reflection on attitudes to beauty. Flowers were left to dry and decay after their use in an arrangement and then photographed. The book documents what is left behind, which can sometimes be as beautiful as what was once admired, but is usually discarded. Although aged, these blooms are nevertheless desirable in the way they twist and curl in unpredictable ways. On one side the flowers are arranged like dancers, full of life and energy. On the other discarded and used items are intermingled with fresh ones in order to create an ethereal environment for the dancers.
