Draw-A-Day Wednesday 8th January – Karl Blossfeldt

Google Karl Blossfeldt and have a look at some of the most beautiful black and white photos ever produced… all on his home-made camera. You can read about his life on Wikipedia, but in a nutshell he produced the pieces from the plants which grew locally, as a drawing aid for his students. When published, the photos recieved world-acclaim, and still inspire many, especially architects and sculptors. I never tire of looking at his work… so perfect, simple and detailed. Find an image you love and draw that today.
