2019 Barry Rosenthal: Photobotanicus Wall Calendar

Author: Rosenthal ,Barry

Description: Barry Rosenthal finds beauty in the weedy and the wild. Drawn to roadsides and shorelines, forests and preserves, he captures on film the uncultivated plant life all around us. Images from his fine art photography series Photobotanicus evoke botanical illustrations with their studied configuration and elegant simplicity. “Whether it is the interplay of graphic forms or an arranged collage,” Rosenthal says, “what comes through is my intimate contact with nature.” He works outdoors in all seasons, creating compositions of collected weeds and common plants on white paper in diffused sunlight. Rosenthal, also an urban archaeologist and sculptor, has long been turning discarded and overlooked things into art. His photography is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and has a following worldwide.
