EVERYDAY IS MORE SPECIAL THAN ANY SPECIAL OCCASION
While leafing through the pages of “Bringing Nature Home”, one directly remembers how ‘everyday is more special than any special occasion’.
Editor: Sidni Karavil

“This book calls upon us to look, to appreciate, and whenever possible, to collect a bit of the outdoors to bring inside. Of course, flowers are for every day, to be picked up after work with the bread and milk – and with the proliferation of farmer’s markets everywhere that is now easy for us to do. Why do we too often save flowers for special occasions like a party or a thank you? While the photographs here are rich, what they show is everyday life; real rooms with real flowers, not interior-decorated homes with professional-looking displays. The quotidian nature of these images, and the moments they evoke, reveal that somehow the everyday is more special than any special occasion.”
