Back in the day when Alexey Brodovitch was still the art director at Harper’s Bazaar, he told the then young up-and-coming photographer Richard Avedon: 'Astonish me.'
We think that’s the best advice ever. We have taken these words to heart in creating the online magazine The Green Gallery, in which we celebrate the beauty of flowers and plants. We hope to surprise you, excite you, tickle you and bring you enjoyment whilst also amazing you and moving you to wonder.
The magazine has been produced in collaboration with creative spirits such as photographers from Vogue, W Magazine and Kinfolk, stylists from Elle Deco, and leading and up-and-coming artists and bloggers who shape the zeitgeist. They’re all international fans of flowers and plants.
Issue 6: Erotique exotique
Floral chinoiserie, oh la la. Our muses exude érotique exotique. This spring issue is a sensual awakening, in terms of both era and season. Literally a new spring, with a love for delightful nature as an inspirational creed in which the anxieties of everyday life fade away in a beautiful mysticism. We desire botanical celebrations in a modern-day fairytale setting to serve as a counterweight to a society which is being shaken to its very foundations. With the Iris as the literal bringer of good news. The unflinchingly expressive blue beauty which represents an era of courage, colour and hope - a promise of all the beauty still to come ‘from out of the blue’.
