Description

From the publisher: "Vulgaris, our second monograph on Dutch photographer Ron van Dongen, contains a stunning new selection of botanical still lives, and confirms van Dongen's position as the most innovative and exciting artist working in the genre today. By blending aspects of classical technique with an unmistakably modern approach to subject matter, van Dongen has cultivated a unique contribution to the longstanding tradition of still-life floral studies."
