Over het boek
Plants cannot move. In order to attain genetic diversity, they have found ingenious ways to motivate animals to help them, luring them in with magnificent colours and sweet aromas, and offering them nectar and pollen as a reward. This "sex by proxy" process is called (animal) pollination and it involves incredibly hard work, day after day, by millions of tiny organisms, tasked by plants with transferring pollen from one flower to another. We will often notice this process -background buzzing on a spring day- but we rarely truly observe it. Viewing the flower from the insect's perspective, and vice versa, reveals the beauty, balance, and fragility of pollination, which I hope have all been captured in this photographic journey.
