The late German artist Karl Blossfeldt spent much of his career as a sculptor and teacher but broke artistic ground by photographing and isolating plant forms and achieving what was considered objective photography. Blossfeldt made an art historical impact with the release of his 1928 book of photographs, Art Forms in Nature, and was thrust into the limelight as the forefather of the New Objectivity art movement of the 1930s: "The rigorous composition of Blossfeldt's photographs of plant details, like wrought iron shapes on a neutral ground--originally intended for use in his classes on plant modeling--struck his contemporaries as being exemplary for modern photography." Now, his photographic collages of plant forms (discovered in 1977) are shown in their entirety in Karl Blossfeldt: Working Collages. These collages have stirred the curiosity of some in the field because they are so different from Blossfeldt's known work.

If you're interested in the beginnings of conceptual artwork, this book is a great chance to wonder and draw your own conclusions about the thought process of an important contributor to photography. -- J.P.
