What other people are saying about this book:

In this work Eva gives away her secrets on how to go about personal image-making sessions using only one subject, in this case the humble dandelion. The book is delightful in that not only is it a visual feast of one photographer's amazing talent to capture a subject's depth and nuance, but also that it gives the reader some simple, fun tasks to enhance their own photography abilities. Wendy Roche

This is a single subject book about dandelions and, seemingly, not very exciting. But the opposite applies. Eva Polak's joint skills as a creative art photographer and graphic designer make this book a joy to hold and essential reading for both emerging and seasoned art photographers. Every page is compelling, with luscious images and crisp, clean design. Add to that heaps of practical advice in a simple terminology, and "The Secret Life of Dandelions" is a real winner! Eva has created a most valuable book to guide and inspire us all ­­ and keep on the library shelf for regular reads. I am delighted to endorse it.Ken Ball, art photographer and tutor, Australia

This book uses macro photography of dandelions as its simple subject, illustrating the old adage "less saying more." This instructional book, complete with exercises, teaches subjects such as learning to see, light and colour, abstracting shapes and textures, moods (emotions/feelings) and concludes with a chapter on "photographing your inner self". "You are creating you". Of course, the book is made complete with stunningly exquisite photographs of dandelions as you have never seen them before; mysterious, mesmerising light and colour; simple beauty and sensuality of nature which will both haunt and inspire you.
