About the Book
Becoming : Transience and Transmutation is not only an exploration of the British passion for all things horticultural, it is also an expression of the very conflicted relationship that we all have with the brevity of life, our definition of perfection, and what we feel transpires in the invisible spectrums as living matter takes on ever-changing forms.
With intricately constructed gardens and deconstructed blooms, extruded and interconnected in highly textural and graceful presentations, Wendy Farrow combines her acute observations and her spiritual sensitivity to tell the story of perpetual beauty.
Wendy Farrow was born in England in 1962. She has had a passion for photography and all art forms most of her life. In 1996, she received an Award of Excellence from the Vancouver Film School in Multimedia and has been exploring the amalgamation of traditional and digital image-making. After living in Paris in 2002, Wendy took an interest in sculpture and is now using her own sculptures in her images. Her career as a Fine Art Photographer was launched in Toronto Canada in 2003 and she continued to live and work there until June 2007 when she returned to Paris. Wendy's images have received international acclaim, most recently a First Place in Fine Art Architecture at Prix de la Photographie Paris and an Honorable Mention for her first book in the category of Fine Art Books at the International Photography Awards.
