Fischer is one of the most prominent botanical photographers worldwide. Due to his commitment and his unique portraits of endangered blossoms, he is also referred to as the “Ambassador of Flowers”. Richard Fischer was born in Manila, Philippines, and moved to Europe at the age of twelve. He now lives in France and in Germany.

With his commitment to art, Fischer creates awareness of nature’s fragility.
In his new picture book FLORAL (teNeues Publishing House) Richard gives flowers a voice, letting them charmingly elegant tell their very personal story.
