Blossfeldt Steel

Robbie Heidinger

Only a handful of artists have captured nature's power as succinctly as Karl Blossfeldt. The highly focused intensity of these photos hit you deep in the gut. He is able to extract the essence of a natural object without dominating it: quite the opposite, the artist disappears, and the awesomeness of nature humbles the viewer. A delicate flower takes on the steeliness of the machine age.
