In fashion models and roses alike, British photographer David Sims finds beauty in imperfection. His book features floral portraits with flaws. Sepia-tinged leaves, wrinkled petals, splayed anthers and dehiscent stamens—like the disheveled models, were it not for their imperfections, the rose portraits would not be nearly as memorable.
Photographer Klaus Enrique has revived a Renaissance classic: the surreal botanical portraits of 16th-century Milanese painter Guiseppe Arcimboldo—now, rendered through the lens, not the brush. A modern perspective gives the work new meaning: rather than "From what far off land did that gourd arrive?" we ask "Is that a hybrid or an heirloom?" Instead of "The painter is nuts," we think "The photographer must eat very healthy." 
Photographer Alexander James, who has worked with floral subjects for over 15 years, will go to any lengths necessary to get the shot, including submerging bouquets & fruit in a dark tank, rigging an underwater light, and even breeding butterflies in his studio. In this Q&A, he talks about his latest series, 'Glass,' for which he's developed a process that replaces color pigment with purified water.
