one of my alltime favorites (you can find former entries here):
a photographic Artist whom i admire very much.
he was an abassador of the "new objectivity", an artistic movement in photography.
i´m sure you know some of his famous prints:
now i made some Pictures in this style myself
(turned photos of plants i had taken last summer into png, put them on a texture Background from 2lil owls and turned that into black and White.)
next step was adding a film overlay over the pictures:
i printed These (my Printer didn´t want to print in b/w, so i surrendered to that higher power and in the end i felt ok with the sepia tone, maybe even better!).
for the right side of the spread i took an original printing from blossfeldt.
text on Millimeter paper with font castellar.
some of blossfeldt´s plants are also available as stamps (art journey), which i used on my Background.
his work is still available in books.
In 2001 Urformen der Kunst was included in "The Book of 101 Books" as one of the seminal photographic books of the twentieth century.
