Closely observed explores the infinite variety and beauty of the botanical world. Andrea Baldeck sequences photographs in sumptuous black and white to beguile the viewer with variations on the theme of leaf and flower, fruit and seed. The aesthetic appeal of a mute yet deeply expressive world imbues the 178 tritone plates. The book presents a garden of the imagination that invites the eye to linger, marvel, and enjoy.

Andrea Baldeck is a musician, physician, and photographer. Her photographs have been exhibited widely and are part of the permanent collections of major museums.
