Kate Breakey: Black Tulips

Kate Breakey is known throughout the world for her artistic photographs of nature. In 2011 Kate visited Amsterdam, the tulip capital of the world, and in 2012, she purchased a bag of “Queen of the Night” tulip bulbs and began to read about how to grow tulips in Tucson. Kate then gave the bulbs, along with the instructions, to eight of her closest friends and asked them to grow the black tulip so she could photograph it. They all succeeded, and in turn Kate not only photographed the tulip, but captured portraits of each of her growers with their flower.

This exhibit will be located in the Friends House Gallery.
