Unearthed : photography’s roots

[text Alexander Moore, Fred G. Meijer]

Unearthed: Photography’s Roots traces the history of photography from the 1840s to present day, as seen through depictions of plants and botany. It examines key moments in the development of the medium, from the Pictorialist to the Modernist movements, to the birth of colour photography and the pioneering techniques embraced by contemporary artists. This book considers photographers’ enduring connection to the natural world and the ways in which the photographic image has radically transformed how this is pictured and understood. Published to coincide with the first major photography exhibition at Dulwich Picture Gallery, this book brings together over one hundred works by forty of the greatest photographers of nature, ranging from nineteenth-century pioneers to modern artists working in the digital age.
