Hi! I'm Jenna, I live in England and I'm an Art student at university. Occasionally I post my own work!

Karl Blossfeldt achieved recognition for his micro-photographs of plants, which were first seen by the public in his book Urformen der Kunst (The Originary Forms of Art), 1928.

Through these photographs he wanted to show that all forms of art have their beginnings within the forms of nature. This depiction of basic forms provoked a variety of responses among artists, from a Neo-Romantic longing for nature, to alienation from the surreal enlargement of subject-matter.

I bought the book Natural Art Forms, and it has 120 of his photographs presented on full pages, and is so lovely and inspirational just to look through, and I’m always amazed at all of the forms his photographs show! I’m thinking of using these as inspiration for some of my future work.
