My botanical documents should contribute to
restoring the link with nature. They should
reawaken a sense of nature, point to its teeming
richness of form, and prompt the viewer to
observe for himself the surrounding plant world.

Karl Blossfeldt's photographs were made with a
homemade camera that could magnify the subject
up to 30 times its actual size, revealing details
within a plant's natural structure.
Published in 1928 when Blossfeldt was 63 and a
professor of applied art at the Berliner
Kunsthochschule, "Urformen der Kunst" quickly
became an international bestseller and in turn
made Blossfeldt famous almost overnight.
His contemporaries were impressed by the

abstract shapes and structures in nature that he
revealed. In 2001 Urformen der Kunst was included
in "The Book of 101 Books" as one of the seminal
photographic books of the Twentieth Century.
