Summary

Summary

At a London antiques market in 1981, a photograph collector came upon some pictures whose startling originality had been hidden since the turn of the century. After being shown to curators, collectors, and historians, they were pronounced brilliant. Now, the photographs are available to the world for the first time in "Plant Kingdoms: The Photographs of Charles Jones". Jones, a mysterious turn-of-the-century figure who obsessively photographed the plants he came across everyday but showed them to few people and left explanation of them to no one. The raw yet elegant black-and-white photographs -- portraits of all types of flowers, fruits, and vegetables -- bring the reader into a strange and beautiful encounter with the natural world. With museum exhibitions coinciding with the publication of the book, it is sure to stir public attention as well as the readers who will be compelled to buy it.
