The Orchid is no ordinary flower. It has inspired people for thousands of years to appreciate beauty, contemplate nature, express love, show compassion and seek inner truth. For those who are willing to explore its mysteries, and learn from them, the Orchid can be a wonderful teacher. Max Fulcher has been a disciple of the Orchid for most of his life. Born in the hinterland of the Queensland rainforests, he has travelled many paths – successful adman, publisher, author, photographer and artist. But the common thread that runs through his life has been the Orchid. He has collected, photographed, written about, drawn and nurtured them. He has sought Orchids from the coasts of Australia to the jungles of Borneo, Burma and the Philippines. Max Fulcher knows Orchids.
