About the Book
In the Gardens by the Bay…
within the two soaring domes…
deep in the night…
the flowers reveal their secrets…
In collaboration with Gardens by the Bay, Hong Kong/Australian photographer Man Cheung presents a photographic gallery of the most exquisite flowers found inside the Gardens’ two conservatories, the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest. Domes illuminates in loving detail the intricate beauty of more than 100 flowers from the gardens, pushing the boundaries of how we view them.

A marriage of science and art, this volume is a splendid tribute to the Gardens by the Bay’s achievements, and to the beauty of flowers in all their varied forms. The author developed a unique photographic technique to capture the natural beauty of each species and none of the images have been digitally altered.

For those interested to learn more about the featured flowers, there is also an index appended, listing their botanical names and classification.
