Experience 'Orchid Daze' at the Fuqua Orchid Center in Atlanta, GA
Featuring award-winning photography by Parish Kohanim
Who knew the next best thing to seeing orchids in real-life would be seeing them printed on metal? Luckily at the Fuqua Orchid Center at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, visitors can get a taste of both. On view from February 9 - April 7, the Orchid Daze installation features breathtaking images by one of Blazing's good friends and clients, Parish Kohanim. As one enters this blooming arena of dynamic color, fragrance, and botanical wonder, the combination of fine art and nature heightens the senses to a new degree. As the largest Orchid Center in the United States, the space features thousands of orchids from ground to ceiling, making it an ideal space to wander and learn. Photographer Parish Kohanim's high-definition images unveil the many strange yet beautiful intricacies of these exotic plants. The dye-sublimated metal panels on which the images are displayed allow the colors to pop and radiate vibrantly. It is as if the photographed orchids are three-dimensional, with their larger-than-life proportions enticing the viewer to move closer and closer to the surface. Parish Kohanim brings the flowers into the realm of the viewer, encouraging imagination to flourish. Throughout Kohanim's career as a fine-art photographer, his passion to exemplify the extraordinary has remained a constant. Orchid Daze is undoubtedly a clear example of this vision.
