Aussie photographer Warwick Orme is known for his high-art shots of models against a white background, their fashion (and their complexion) blemish-free. He gives the same diva treatment to these wildflowers that, on the left, evoke the blustery glamour of a lady's hat on a day at the races and, on the right, an aging widow's decaying lips. Orme is part of a spectacular group showing of beautified natural objects at Bond Street Gallery through July 31. —Emma Pearse
