In collaboration with the international gallerist Michael Hoppen, The Connolly exhibition features 31 spectacular first edition photogravures by Karl Blossfeldt who practiced as a photographer, sculptor and a design teacher in the 1920’s. Blossfeldt is regarded as one of the defining photographers of the twentieth century and dedicated thirty-five years to documenting botanical subject matter. He developed a series of homemade cameras that allowed him to photograph plant surfaces in magnified detail.
