Karl Blossfeldt: Art Forms in Nature
© Karl Blossfeldt Collection, Cologne

An exhibition from Hayward Gallery, Southbank, that's part of Bristol's Green Capital programme.

Karl Blossfeldt (1865-1932) is known as one of the twentieth century's defining photographers, honing a specialism in intricate botanical photographs. By developing homemade cameras and lenses, he was able to magnify his subjects by up to 30 times, exposing the underlying structures of nature that until then had been a mystery.

In this exhibition you'll be able to peruse 40 of his original photogravures from 1932, capturing stunning close-up images of plants and flora.
