Honour Hiers Stewart's plant connections - PLANT CURATOR

I use a 1960’s Tachihara camera made of cherry wood. The camera, much like my collection of plants, is all deliberate, a slow and contemplative process, but in the end a rewarding and tangible result. I am creating a contemporary herbarium with film and hope to create an interest for others to nurture their own native plant species so that they will be here tomorrow. My process is very deliberate-quiet and meditative with lots of observing in nature. I am always curious; walking, sitting, weeding, nurturing, planting, collecting, considering what is growing, and then I photograph the specimen gathered. Being the youngest child, I grew up observing others.

I live in Asheville, North Carolina at 2500 elevation- gorgeous mountains and a beautiful temperate forest with lots of native and non native plants. Contemporary photography – ferns 2.

Remarkable Photos Capture the Light That Plants Emit

But the plants, and the colors are real. It’s the result of a cool trick of nature. All plants reflect light. Leaves reflect green, and flowers reflect red, or yellow, or whatever. But plants also fluoresce, which means when they reflect ultraviolet light, they emit longer wavelengths visible to the human eye. ART 1085 Introduction ​to Photography - Introduction / Home.

Mi Pattern Laboratory and Exhibition

The Lethaby Gallery in Central Saint Martins will become a working laboratory where a collection of microscopes will be available to explore a world too small to be seen with the naked eye. The materials we use every day reveal complex textures and patterns when magnified from 20 – 2000x. Visitors to the gallery will be able to create a new landscape of pattern and in a shift from the micro to macro. The images created will be printed out on a large format printer to provide material to create a series of pattern books, repositories of micro samples as an archive of the event.

Visitors will be welcome bring in their own materials to examine throughout the week. Digging Deep Reveals the Intricate World of Roots.
