|BECOMING BEING PASSING|
Tulips haye been a source of fascination for centuries. Taking cues from the rigorous clarity and objectivity of the Düsseldorf School photographers and drawing inspiration from the subtle poetry of nature, German photographer Sabine Pankert has created extraordinary photographs that truly capture the majesty of this almost mythical flower.
Following a single bunch of tulips as it passes through time, the twenty—eight lyrical images in this beautifully produced volume document the changes that result from life's design. The book begins with a poem,"Stages" by Hermann Hesse, and then shuns further text allowing the yiewer to be captiyated by the visual narrative traced by the sumptuous photographs.
This book will be treasured not only by flower enthusiasts, gardeners, and photo book aficionados but also by anyone who is experiencing changes.
As every flower fades and as all youth Departs, so life at every stage,
So every virtue, so our grasp of truth, Blooms in its day and may not last forever. Since life may summon us at every age
Be ready, heart, for parting, new endeavor, Be ready bravely and without remorse
To find new light that old ties cannot give. In all beginnings dwells a magic force
For guarding us and helping us to live.
Serenely let us move to distant places
And let no sentiments of home detain us. The Cosmic Spirit seeks not to restrain us But lifts us stage by stage to wider spaces. If we accept a home of our own making, Familiar habit makes for indolence.
We must prepare for parting and leave—taking
Or else remain the slaves of permanence.
Even the hour of death may send
Us speeding on to fresh and newer spaces, And life may summon us to newer races,
So be it, heart: bid farewell without end.
