Karl Blossfeldt (1865-1932) was a German artist and professor at the Royal School of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Berlin where he taught from 1898-1932, who dedicated his entire career to studying and photographing organic forms.

About

A photographer and professor at the Royal School of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Berlin, Karl Blossfeldt (1865–1932) is recognised for his extensive and unique photographic plant portraits, which were created to support his argument that all forms created by man, have their origins in nature. His unique photographs reveal the tactile qualities, intricate forms and peculiar aspects of flora which, when magnified transform to resemble architectural structures and the ornamented patterned surfaces of modernist designs. Blossfeldt’s fusion of scientific observation, sculptural form and abstract compositions pioneered an artistic style that forged new approaches to modern art and photography.
