Karl Blossfeldt – Art Forms In Nature
23 Sep – 9 Dec 2017
Beverley Treasure House
Karl Blossfeldt (1865-1932) was a German photographer celebrated by the Surrealists and early modernists for his pioneering close-up images of plants and flora.
Trained as a sculptor, he was also an amateur botanist, fascinated by the underlying structures of plants.
This Hayward Touring exhibition features a selection of photogravures from an original German portfolio, Wendergarten der Natur, 1932, edited by Blossfeldt and published in the year of his death.
