Whitechapel Gallery hosts twentieth century photographer, Karl Blossfeldt’s unique collection of plant portraits.

BlossfeldtYou’ll have to get your skates on to catch the massively influential German photographer, whose beautifully strange ‘botanical portraits’ show plant life up-close.

Karl Blossfeldt (1865-1932) is now recognised as one of the key figures in the development  of twentieth century photography. His fusion of scientific observation, sculptural form and surreal composition pioneered an artistic style that forged new approaches to modern art and photography. The exhibition is a major presentation of Blossfeldt’s work and consists of over 80 silver gelatin prints made and used during his tutorship.

The exhibition will be running at the Whitechapel Gallery until Friday 14th June 2013 – Admission is free!
