Susan, the photographer who took this shot of Pascali says there's a story to go with the photograph. Most of her photographs are taken in the field. This one wasn't. It's one of the only instances where Susan actually staged the picture. In fact, if you look closely, you'll see a piece of blue tack holding the stem to the black background. An American lady had contacted her and asked for a photograph of a white rose for her son. This lovely photograph is the result.
