Botanical Studies Squares
The idea originated over 10 years ago, inspired by the nature illustrations of Ernst Haeckel. Since 2017, I have been photographing botanical objects in this highly minimalist black and white style.
Inspired by countless sketches by Ernst Haeckel from 'Art Forms in Nature' (1899-1904) and Karl Blossfeldt's photographs from the 1920s and 1930s, the concept for my project 'Botanical Studies' was born. In this project, each subject is intentionally presented in a minimalist manner.
