H. David Stein's unique mosaic of flora is distinctively detailed in his exhibit "Deconstructed Flowers." His intricate photographs pull out the dimensional presence of flowers using a special technique which layers multiple photographs into a single montage. The end result shows many views of the flower's beauty in a single image. In the Gallery of QBG's Visitor & Administration Building.

H. David Stein's unique mosaic of flora is distinctively detailed in this exhibit, a series of intricate photographs that pull out the detailed beauty of flowers, using a special technique that layers several photographs into a single picture for a view of amazing depth.

Dr. Stein's work as the former chairman of surgery at Flushing Hospital instilled a dedication to the importance of detail. Since his retirement from the medical profession, his interest in photography has intensified. Studying at the International Center of Photography, and with several professionals he has garnered a renewed focus on the technical and visual aspects, and adapted a style that allows him to create photographs that express many aspects of a flower at the same time. "There are many features of flowers that are beautiful and interesting, but each individual photograph can only show a single element of the flower". Unhappy with losing the depth and beauty of his subject, Stein focused on pulling out the dimensional presence of the flower.

"This meant taking multiple photographs and merging then into a single montage. I then allowed the flower to grow more naturally over the image's matting. The end result is a floral image that shows many views of the flower's beauty in a single image."

Dr. Stein's prize-winning photographs have been exhibited widely throughout the Northeast, including the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C., the Salmagundi Club, The Mamaroneck Artist Guild, and other galleries in New York. His photographs can also be found in commercial establishments and in numerous private collections.

The exhibit will be open from Tuesdays to Saturdays, from 8am to 4pm, thur Jan 25, 2014 and is free to the public. For more information, contact Darcy Hector at (718) 886-3800, ext. 330 or dhector@queensbotanical.org.
