Datura by Imogen Cunningham

The photograph titled “Datura” is a work by Imogen Cunningham, an influential American photographer known for her botanical photography, among other subjects. The year of creation is not specified (n.d. stands for “no date”).

The photograph itself is a black and white image featuring a close view of a Datura flower. The Datura flower is captured with its trumpet-like structure in focus, displaying its sweeping curves and delicate folds. The lighting emphasizes the velvety texture of the petals and the intricate details of the flower’s form. The composition is such that the flower occupies the majority of the frame, creating an almost sculptural effect. The background is dark and subdued, allowing the viewer’s attention to remain solely on the Datura flower’s form and texture.
