Dornith Doherty: Archiving Eden
photo-eye Gallery is pleased to announce the addition of Dornith Doherty’s Archiving Eden
, to the Photographer's Showcase. In Archiving Eden
, Doherty photographs seed banks across the globe; exploring everything from small private institutions to some of the world's largest and most compressive seed vaults. In this project Doherty blends science, conservation, and artistry by collaborating with biologists and governments to investigate complex issues while creating poetic imagery — including both straight documentation of values and institutions as well as digital collages utilizing (macro) onsite research x-ray technology. The Photographer's Showcase portfolio focuses on Doherty's delicate and detailed digital collages. Doherty's large scale collages echo fine lucida pencil drawings or early cyanotypes aiding in the formal blend between history, preservation, and photography.
