Karl Blossfeldt - Art Forms in Nature

A Hayward Touring Exhibition from the Southbank Centre, London

Karl Blossfeldt (1865-1932) is regarded as one of the defining photographers of the 20th Century for his exceptional contribution to art through his intricate botanical photographs. During his career spanning over three decades, Blossfeldt developed homemade cameras and lenses which enabled him to magnify his subjects up to 30 times. In doing so he revealed the microcosmic aesthetic and underlying structures of nature, which until then remained unexplored.

THG in partnership with Hayward Touring presents 40 photogravures from 1932, edited by the artist and published in the year of his death. The exhibition is an opportunity to witness an exemplary set of Blossfeldt's signature close-up images of plants and flora.
