In this enchanting series of images, acclaimed photographer Joyce Tenneson breaks new ground by recording the often unseen and overlooked later phases in a plant's life, and finds exquisite beauty in their blossoming and gradual decline. These stunning portraits celebrate the life cycle and allow the reader to appreciate flowers in a new way, as well as contemplate the poignancy, fragility, and continual beauty of life itself.

Just as Tenneson's earlier book Wise Women chronicled the energy, vitality, and beauty of older women, Flower Portraits offers a compelling look at the radiant and exquisitely individual metamorphosis of flowers in the later phases of their lives.
