Involuntary Sculptures, 2003
Seamus Ryan’s photographs of flowers and plants follow in the tradition of Edward Weston, Robert Mapplethorpe and Karl Blossfeldt. Ryan searches for form and character in the twists and folds of petals, stems and plant foliage – in effect creating a unique portrait of each specimen. In turn graceful, playful and even menacing, these contemporary studies present different aspects of the life of the natural world. Limited first edition of 1000 copies, published by Zone – IV. New book.
