About Karl Blossfeldt Photogravures
Karl Blossfeldt spent much of his career photographing plants in his studio with the goal of educating and inspiring students about the brilliance of nature. Lucky for us, these beautiful works of art were born.
Photographed between about 1880 and 1920, these photogravures were printed in 1942. Please read more about Blossfeldt and his process on the Blossfeldt page.
About Studio Kim Smith
Kim’s collages are crafted with antique papers and archival materials. They are meant to be intimate and thought provoking, evoking a peaceful, quiet and simultaneously compelling response from viewers. One can often find a humorous or unexpected element within the frame.
As a result of living in and traveling extensively throughout Europe during her childhood, Smith is greatly influenced by the Dada, Bauhaus, and Wiener Werkstätte movements, as well as Russian Constructivism.
