Synopsis: This book is an eye popper. Uniquely formatted as a hi-gloss soft cover coffee table pictorial dazzler, Blooming Seasons is a blossom guide, a nature travel guide and vivid eye candy for vicarious trips into one of nature s most diverse realms, Michigan s Keweenaw Peninsula. Rich close up blossom images showing every minute amazing detail of 278 varieties of northern wildflowers make Keweenaw Wildflowers Blooming seasons a must have for casual wildflower lovers and serious botanists. Michigan s Keweenaw Peninsula is a remarkable wildflower paradise. Many areas of the country have wonderful and plentiful varieties of wildflowers, but, the Keweenaw has an incredibly diverse topography littered with unique natural habitats making it home to one of the longest lists of rare and endangered species in the Upper Midwest. Desnick is the creator of Keweenaw Wildflowers Up Close, an extensive exhibit of botanical photo art. It ranks as one of the largest public displays of wildflowers in Michigan. The exhibit occupies six rooms in a cabin at Vic s Cabins along US 41 in Kearsarge, Michigan just north of Calumet on the Keweenaw Peninsula. Keweenaw Wildflowers Blooming Seasons is the exhibit in book form. The exhibit and now Blooming Seasons are intended to be composite works to be taken in their entirety and designed to stun the viewer with the incredible beauty and amazing variety of wildflowers that grow on Michigan s unique Keweenaw Peninsula. Desnick explained, I wanted to create something that was shocking to the average outdoor enthusiast using wildflower photographs that revealed the often overlooked beauty under our feet and generate a greater appreciation for this special place called Keweenaw. The book contains a collection of over 300 vivid photos of 278 wildflowers including 20 full page close-ups highlighting some of the most amazing and colorful varieties. All the flower images feature a blooming date (the photo date) placing the image in its chronological blooming season. Desnick includes both common and botanical Latin names.
About the Author: Harvey Desnick is a self-taught naturalist, photographer, graphics professional and former radio broadcaster. Whether it was broadcasting or graphics, Desnick thrived in the creative element. During his over 20 year radio career he became well known as a Michigan Upper Peninsula radio personality and Houghton, Michigan station owner. The next 15 years, during the 1990 s to the mid 2000 s, were spent in the worlds of photography and graphics in southwest Florida. In 1994 he founded Big Color Output, a large format cutting edge digital printing company in Cape Coral. Big Color worked with south Florida s finest photographers, artists and graphic designers. Desnick s Big Color business specialized in creating graphic displays incorporating photography, art and text for interpretive exhibits used in visitor centers, sales centers and museums. His work was recognized in 1999 by the Collier County Florida Builders Association, Naples, Florida, with the Sand Dollar award for Best Sales Center for a golf course community, The Strand. Big Color displays were often seen in the museum at the Ft. Myers, Florida, Thomas Edison & Henry Ford Winter Estates. Desnick s shop was featured in industry trade publications, Digital Graphics Magazine June 2000 and Modern Reprographics (various dates.) When I returned to the Keweenaw, first as a snowbird in 2003 and then as a permanent resident in 2005, I dove into my project, Desnick said Each spring and summer were spent doing what I loved best, wandering in the woods, climbing mountain trails, strolling along the Lake Superior shoreline and sloshing through the bogs admiring and photographing the wildflowers of this incredible peninsula. Desnick concludes, Blooming Seasons was authored to bring the beauty of this special place to the rest of the world in a meaningful way. I hope others will be deeply touched and come see the wildflowers. The Keweenaw is a truly amazing place. They d be glad they came. That s why I did it.
