Richard Fischer is the ultimate Ambassador of Flowers. He lovingly stages them, gives them personality and dignity and reminds us that many flowers ultimately are dying divas.

A premium selection of his photographs were exhibited at the Federal Environment Agency of Germany in 2018. 

Richard´s inimitable flower photographs capture the uniqueness and transience in each blossom. His striking images provide flowers with an aesthetic framework in which their power of expression and majesty remain intact. Fischer´s precise, yet delicate floral compositions record the unique color, form, and texture of each flower, while signaling to the extraordinary beauty, diversity, and fragility of the natural world.

"We need photographers that have an eye for beauty as well as knowledge of transience. In "A Tribute to Flowers" Richard Fischer has complied his best photographs from his œvre. It is a warning that we will probably lose the eccentric splendor of flowers and their great play of colors ultimately. His illustrated book then would be a kind of family album, in which we can leaf through the times again, knowing that many of the plants depicted are no longer among us. At the same time, Fischer succeeds in capturing the virtuosity of colors. And that's what makes his "tribute" spectacular. One beauty follows the next. A festival of colors!"
