|About the Book|
Rarely has the world seen as intimate a visual diary of womanhood as in Flor, an exquisite collection of black-and-white photographs by Flor Garduno. Best known for her magical photographs of Latin Americas landscape and ancient cultural rituals, Garduno now presents an internal, personal journey in which her transforming vision landmarks the natural realm. After the birth of her daughter, Garduno ceased her travels and began working in her home studio. In this spare environment, she constructed graphic tableaux, in most cases centered around female nudes. The result is an extraordinary series of images, symbolically rich and alive with sensuality. Flor vibrates with an intangible presence akin to the magic of dreams.Flor Gardunos work is in the collections of numerous prestigious public institutions, including those of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris.
