About the Book
The world of plants as we have never seen before. That is the essence of this catalogue of the travelling Photosynthesis exhibition. Artists belonging to art movement Tropism have been photographing the world of plants, using unusual, often scientific, visualization techniques. The use of infrared, x-ray, pinhole and electron microscopy give the images a surrealistic and magical touch. The results are unique artistic visualizations that offer a surprising and spectacularly different view on plants.
