July 23, 2012 - PRLog -- WAIKIKI, HONOLULU, HAWAII– Diamond Head Gallery is hosting a cocktail reception in their Waikiki gallery on Saturday, July 28 from 7 to 9 pm. to feature the work of an award-winning photographer who is redefining botanical photography. To RSVP, please contact Justin Montgomery, gallery director, at 808-971-4866.

Integrating the latest technology from NASA and Nikon, David Leaser’s new dettagli technique shows dramatic closeups of flowers with such detail you can literally see the pollen glistening off the stamens. Vivid images of hibiscus, pineapples, Hawaiian flora and other botanicals have been called revolutionary by art critics because their “bee’s-eye” view shows flowers in a way never seen before.

Diamond Head Gallery in Waikiki has introduced many world renowned artists to Hawaii, but their most recent addition is one not miss. For the first time in Honolulu, Leaser’s masterful botanical photography is being showcased. Leaser’s Nightflowers series will first reach the public viewing at the special event “Lux at The Trump” on Friday July 27, 2012. The event is an elegant high-end gathering held at The Trump International Hotel in Waikiki from six o’clock in the evening.

According to Justin Montgomery, gallery director, “Flowers are important in our daily lives in Hawaii. David’s unique perspective is ground-breaking and will be a perfect fit for art collectors and nature lovers.”

“Modern technology is changing the way we see things. By marrying Nikon with NASA, I’ve developed a technique to show details that weren’t possible just a few years ago. I truly believe this artwork will forever change the way you look at flowers,” Leaser says.

Leaser’s work has received acclaim throughout the art community. His work was awarded a Silver Medal in the International Photography Awards amidst 80 submissions in 90 countries.  Ann Landi, contributing editor for ARTNews, says  “Leaser’s work seduces us as only an unforgettable work of art can, to look and look again.”  And John Mendelsohn of ArtNet writes, “David Leaser’s Nightflowers, a series of striking photographs, confronts us with nature at its most flamboyant. In his images, this photographer creates fantastic, contemporary signs from nature’s own high style.”

The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens in Los Angeles developed an artist series around Leaser’s work, and 11 pieces are now in the museum’s permanent collection. Leaser’s work was juried to appear in Architectural Digest’s exclusive home design show exhibit.  And Sunset Magazine recognized Leaser’s work with its coveted “West at Its Best” honor.

Leaser has strong ties to Hawaii. A University of Hawaii student, Leaser is former owner of one of Hawaii’s first macadamia farms, a 40-acre plantation near Waipio Valley on the Big Island. He has authored two botanical books on Hawaii:  “Tropical Gardens of Hawaii” and “Growing Palms in Hawaii” were commissioned by Mutual Publishing.

To RSVP, contact Justin Montgomery, gallery director, at 808-971-4866 for more information. Diamond Head Gallery is located in Waikiki at 226 Lewers Street, Suite 139, Honolulu, Hawaii.
