Praise For Flowers for Lisa: A Delirium of Photographic Invention

“Abelardo Morell’s Flowers for Lisa makes love visible. His photographs have always reached for a new kind of vision and here it is, a completely original point of view, transforming and mysterious and nothing less than fantastic.”

— Alice Hoffman

“Astonishingly beautiful—simply jaw-dropping—a world of original wonders with a subject that one might have thought had been exhausted long ago.”

— Steven Pinker

“The astonishing images in Flowers for Lisa, with their painterly explosions and surprising deconstructions, refract the world anew. Morell has captured the paradoxical: the essence of the things themselves (in this case, flowers as you’ve never seen them before); and the ineffable, tactile, full complexity of love. Bravo!”

— Cristina García

“. . . . the most exhilarating photo book of the year . . . . The book is a tour de force, a sustained burst of emotion, and a transferable unit of joy.”

— The New York Times
