From the early 1900's until his death in 1932, German teacher and photographer Karl Blossfeldt used a variety of specialised photographic techniques to produce dramatic and unusual images of botanical subjects. The result is this unusual and beautiful collection of images in strong monochrome which emphasise the design elements of the plants themselves - their structure, symmetry and beauty.
Seed pods, ears of corn, floral sprays, leaves - all are laid bare in these haunting photographs, which are a vital part of the history of photography as an art.
