Still Life is a photographic celebration of the work of New York City–based florist, artist, and photographer Doan Ly and her studio, a.p. bio.

Ly's stunning work elevates floral design to an art form. While photographs of her floral vignettes are reminiscent of old masters' still life paintings, her playful and innovative use of color and lighting are decidedly contemporary.

This spectacular collection of Ly's own exquisite photographs of her still life creations is unlike any other floral design book. Still Life captures Ly's unique and inspiring aesthetic, which has drawn a dedicated following on social media. Also included is a custom design charette by Ly that provides insight into the style elements that she employs, including information on how to mix flowers, color, scale, texture, vases, accessories, and lighting to create original floral displays, settings, and events.

AN ENTIRELY UNIQUE FLOWER BOOK: Sophisticated design and fashion-centric photography make this a distinctive volume of contemporary and botanical art.

POPULAR AUTHOR: Doan Ly’s unique installations have been created for weddings, events, and museum exhibits. She and her photography have been featured in the New York Times T Magazine, Vogue, and many more print and online publications.

GORGEOUS GIFT: Beautifully designed with full-color photographs, metallic foil accents on the cover, a ribbon marker, and other lovely details, this makes a memorable gift for any occasion, including and especially Mother’s Day and graduation.
