Plant Portrait 5
Plant Portraits is a collection of photographs that were captured during residencies and research in communities throughout the Americas. The plant’s origins range from Argentina, Peru, and the United States (Florida, New York, New Mexico and Vermont). Each plant has its own story, magic, connection and relationship to people and place. "I want us to reimagine the relationships we have to the natural world. Can we see plants beyond the anthropocentric lense of economics and aesthetics? I offer Plant Portraits as an opportunity to see each plant for who they are, their attributes, their stories, histories and the continual relationships they offer. I hope you are as captivated by these images as I was by the plants who sat for their portraits." -- Blair Butterfield
