German photographer Karl Blossfeldt, these mixed media, collaged monotypes aspire to highlight the intrinstic beauty of plant forms and their vivid, intricate, tactile and dynamic qualities.Recognized as a pioneer of plant photography in the macrophotography technique, Blossfeldt enlarged his plant specimens and photographed them close-up in such as way as to reveal their textural qualities and highly intricate forms.

“My botanical documents should contribute to restoring the link with nature. They should reawaken a sense of nature, point to its teeming richness of form, and prompt the viewer to observe for himself the surrounding plant world.”

-Karl Blossfeldt
