Cathedrals for Plants

Botanical gardens stand for man's centuries-old fascination with exotic plants. Werner Pawlok has photographically explored special tropical greenhouses within Europe and shows us here his most beautiful images in his usual colorfully expressive manner - from the Palm House in the Botanical Garden in Copenhagen to Kew Gardens in London to the Great Palm House Schönbrunn. The scent of the warm earth and the breathing of the plants is almost palpable at the sight of the large-format and colorful images. Fascinating color plays let the filigree architecture of famous master builders and the impressive plants shine in a special light. Pawlok, self-taught and intuitive photographer, captures these magical places in a fascinating way. Each photo is a work of art in itself.

Fascinating texts about the cultural history of greenhouses from the simple wooden construction to the efficient glass dome accompany this extraordinary photo book. Be inspired by Pawlok's high-end photographs and embark on a nostalgic journey. As Pawlok himself puts it, "To enter these wonderful glass palaces and explore their green-scented, tropical interiors with my camera felt like an expedition into the heart of the 19th century."

Werner Pawlok, born in the German city of Stuttgart in 1953, founded the first gallery for photography in southern Germany in 1980. His work gained wide recognition in the late eighties when his pieces were shown in group exhibitions of works by Warhol, Richter, Mapplethorpe, and Polke. Pawlok’s works have their own very unique character, and they have a strong impact on those who gaze upon them. His style is beyond the mainstream, leading to recognition of his work around the world in museums and galleries, as well as among collectors.
