Long-recognized as a true pioneer of modernism and the New Objectivity, Blossfeldt quickly rose to fame after an exhibition and the subsequent publication in the late 1920s of his photographs of plant forms, an activity he laboriously pursued as an aid to his teaching duties. "The publication of this book is the result of an extraordinary event--the 1997 discovery in Blossfeldt's estate of sixty-one previously unknown collages, in virtually mint condition, of photographic contact prints arranged on large cardboard sheets."--the publisher. Published for the first time, this book represents a significant advancement in our knowledge of Blossfeldt's working habit and stands as a tribute to this seminal and revered figure.

A selection of Karl Blossfeldt's prints are available at photo-eye Gallery. See his work here.
