Wild Love Affair is much more than an orchid book. It is a journey into the very soul of wilderness and a reflection of the power and grace of the human spirit. Bransilver’s photographs are at once precise and ethereal, literal and figurative, and they capture the mystery and allure of her beloved wild orchids while exposing a bit of her own soul.
These photos are accompanied by educative essays as well as tales of orchid love, lust, discovery and destruction. Together the images and prose illustrate the importance and complexity of orchid conservation and reveal the vital need for all of us to seek and cherish the beauty and wildness around us and in our hearts.
