Inspired by the great work of Karl Blossfeld from 1928 “Urformen der Kunst“, the series resembles at first glance a photo album of gorgeous plants photographed in a neutral background. On closer look though it reveals that actually they are artificial. Plastic plants produced for mass consumption for decorative purposes.

The photographs have not been retouched or artificially manipulated and are collected in a photo book published by Hatje Cantz
