The photographs of Karl Blossfeldt

These images have been a great inspiration to me for many years.

"Blossfeldt's photographs were made with a homemade camera that could magnify the subject up to thirty times its actual size. By doing so he revealed extraordinary details within the natural structure of the plants. "

Nature and magnyfing instruments of any kind are the artist's best friends.
