About this title


Karl Blossfeldt (1865-1932) photographed thousands of plants; these are almost never seen from above, but rather from the side, and against a neutral background. This book featuers these images of plants.

About the Author:

Blossfeldt was born and lived his entire life in Germany. Although he originally intended to teach natural science, a field trip in the company of artists and sculptors led him to apply artistic principles to the study of plant life.

Georges Bataille (1897-1962) was a French writer, essayist, and philosopher whose works include "The Story of the Eye", "The Blue of Noon", "The Accursed Share", and "Theory of Religion".

Gert Mattenklott, born in Oranienburg, Germany, in 1942, is dean of philosophy and humanities at the Free University, Berlin. He is an internationally acclaimed essayist, literary scholar, and critic.
