This volume contains examples of Milan's highly original work in plant photography and still life. Some of the early work dates from 1972 to 1976 and was originally exhibited at London's Photographers' Gallery, in 1977, with the later work dating from 2007 to 2016. In particular, Milan has been interested to explore those botanical structures that are often characterized by what at first sight might appear to be a random arrangement of spines, leaves or flowers but which, upon closer scrutiny, are actually revealed to be highly structured patterns and mathematically correct symmetries - even in the repetition of asymmetry, there is a regularity and natural order. By observing the tiniest details and enlarging them substantially, Milan found that there was often an extraordinary, almost abstract, beauty to be enjoyed. In a number of his stunning still life images, Milan has captured what is perhaps the more obvious and conventional beauty of plants and flowers, his 'table top' arrangements capturing for all time the innate stillness and richness of natural beauty. The Photographer, Milan Svanderlik, is a veteran observer of the extraordinary diversity and beauty of nature, people and life in general. Milan Svanderlik Photography: Plants & Still Life, comprising photographs taken from 1972 to 2016, is the first of three volumes illustrating his work. Over the years, Milan's highly original and well-regarded photographs have been exhibited in a number of art galleries, both here in London and 'over the pond, in New York.
