Gardeners, nature lovers, and health and wellness devotees will delight in the uncommon images revealed in artist Joan Solomon's unique book of nature photography, Spirits in the Garden: The Amazing Realm of Secret Life Around Us. This beautiful hardbound volume contains un-retouched full-color photographs of the subtle, yet obviously present spirits that populate gardens and forests. And while the photographs speak volumes by themselves, the text describes the natural healing remedies, wisdom and nutrition that these plants provide.
The photographer s images reveal the unmistakable presence of life-like countenances imbedded in the plants. At once amazing and magical, the spirit-images are a profound reminder of the healing life that exists in nature.
''Gnomes, elves, sprites, fairies they've been known by many names have been present in folklore for centuries,'' said Solomon. ''But the way in which they reveal themselves in these photographs is a wake-up call to become aware and sensitive to what nature provides,'' the Minnesota-based artist continued. Readers agree, summed up in this comment Solomon received: '' 'Spirits in the Garden' is absolutely awe-inspiring. When I show it to people, it takes their breath away'' After seeing the photographs in the book, you will never look at a flower or spend time in nature in the same way again.
