Ron van Dongen
New Botanicals in Black & White

Soulcatcher Studio is very pleased to present this new body of work by Ron van Dongen. Mr. van Dongen is one of the most recognized and respected photographers of botanical studies working today. He brings a fresh, contemporary approach to botanical illustration.

In the foreword to Ron van Dongen's first monograph, Alba Nero (Nazraeli Press, 1999), Steven Jenkins describes the brilliance of Ron van Dongen's floral studies. He comments, "...rarely has the infinite mystery of a dahlia or magnolia been visualized with such hushed reverence and elegiac intensity as in the photographs of Ron van Dongen." Jenkins continues, "He shows us the flower as resourceful and delicate, decorative and essential, sacred and sensual, life force and death knell." These images are always suggestive of all that is beyond our tethered reach.

One of the most amazing aspects of Ron's art is that he cultivates all of the plants and flowers that he photographs in his own back yard gardens in Portland, Oregon. His fourth book, Ops Opis, was published by Nazraeli Press in 2004.
