The images that emerge from their experimentations are often unexpected and always memorable.

Flower, the latest collection of photographs by Andrew Zuckerman, continues the conservation-minded work that the prolific photographer began in his previous tomes, Creature (2007) and Bird (2009). For his latest project, Zuckerman photographed over 150 beautiful botanicals, investigating species both exotic and familiar. True to Zuckerman’s distinctive style, each photograph is minimalist in nature, showing a subject in isolation against a blank field. In this way, our attentions are drawn solely toward his unique and beautiful flora subjects.

Before long, the pair had created a vast array of unique burgers inspired by everything from popular cartoons to movie releases. While many of these Fat and Furious Burgers are not quite fit for consumption, they certainly are a feast for the eyes.

Ultimately, the mini-series is a comparative study of two paths toward womanhood, one biological and the other surgical/chemical in nature.
