Karl Blossfeldt (1865-1932) was a German photographer celebrated by the Surrealists and early modernists for his pioneering close-up images of plants and flora. Trained as a sculptor he was also an amateur botanist, fascinated by the underlying structures of nature.  He created his extraordinary catalogue of studies of natural forms as a teaching tool for the benefit of artists, artisans and architects.  

This Hayward Touring exhibition consists of 40 photogravures from an original German portfolio, Wundergarten der Natur 1932, edited by Blossfeldt and published in the year of his death. It follows the recent exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery, London.
