Into the Orchid House: In Search of Beauty
Kaisa BreedenStanley Breeden
High on the hills of the Atherton Tablelands in Far North Queensland stands a glasshouse built by orchid expert Bruce Gray. Whether from the cloud forests of South America, the Himalayan Mountains of India, the mangroves of the Philippines, the rocky outcrops of Madagascar or the dense rainforests of New Guinea, tropical species thrive here.
Award-winning photographers Stanley and Kaisa Breeden capture the plants in rich, detailed images. Specialising in macro photography using natural light, the Breedens produce masterful floral portraits, exquisite in detail and colour. Step into the orchid house to discover this extraordinary and diverse world.
PRAISE FOR THE BOOK

‘The photography is, of course, as exquisite as the plants themselves … the accompanying text makes for compelling reading … the kind of language that manages to be both alluringly descriptive while providing some very handy hints for budding botanical snappers.’ West Weekend Magazine
