Fake Flowers in Full Colour.

Fake Flowers in Full Colour. Photographs by Jaap Scheeren and Hans Gremmen. Fw:, 2009. 40 pp., colour illustrations thoughout, 9½x13½". Images from Fw:.

Dutch photographers Japp Scheeren and Hans Gremmen has made this wonderful book that was part of the Best Books of 2009 selection at photo-eye.

'Fake Flowers in Full Colour' is described like this:

"Is it possible to create a three dimensional colour seperation? That was the question that triggerd Jaap Scheeren and Hans Gremmen to start this experiment.

A bouquet of fake flowers was arranged as starting and striving point. The next step was to create four still lifes of this bouquet: one in Cyan, one in Magenta, one in Yellow and one in Black. These still lifes were photographed and merged into one image.

In theory this should have been the same as the startingpint, but in practice it became 'Fake Flowers In Full Colour'."

A special edition of 'Fake Flowers in Full Colour' including an original print is available from the publisher.
