Karl Blossfeldt

Text from Wikipedia

Blossfeldt, Karl
German 1865-1932

Karl Blossfeldt (1865 1932) was a German photographer, sculptor, and teacher.

The 1928 publication of Urformen der Kunst (Archetypes of Art), a stunning collection of extreme closeup photos of plants, earned Blossfeldt a place as a pioneer in the New Objectivity art movement. This was followed up with Wundergarten Der Natur (Magical Garden of Nature), which was published in the year he died, 1932.

His works focused on the beauty of nature. He chose to use the organic forms of the earth to contrast against stark backgrounds so that the shapes he created focused on the small detail of nature, making it the main focus of the image and to show these natural compositions on scales as small as ornamental ironwork and as large as the shapes of entire buildings.
