In the 1890s, Karl Blossfeldt started to photograph plants, seeds and other illustrative material from nature to study the patterns and designs found in natural forms. His close-ups of the smallest plant parts, magnified up to thirty times their natural size, are startling as the plants appear geometric and sculptural. Thematic excursions into the present, illustrating the rediscovery of Blossfeldt's motifs in design and architecture over the past twenty years, offer a contemporary perspective on the famous German photographer.
