Karl Blossfeldt: Art Forms in Nature is a Hayward Gallery Touring exhibition from the Southbank Centre, London, which presents an original portfolio of 40 photogravures from 1932, entitled Wundergarten der Natur, edited by the artist and published in the year of his death. The exhibition presents an opportunity to witness an exemplary set of Blossfeldt’s signature close-up images of plants and flora.


Celebrated by the Surrealists and early modernists, Blossfeldt (1865-1932) is regarded as one of the defining photographers of the twentieth century for his exceptional contribution to the art through his intricate botanical photographs. During his career, which spanned over three decades and included 6,000 photographs, Blossfeldt developed homemade cameras and lenses which enabled him to magnify his subjects by up to 30 times. In doing so he captured the microcosmic aesthetic of his specimens and revealed the underlying structures of nature, which until then remained unexplored.
