Entry Description

In her series Dispersal, Anna Laurent explores the myriad forms through which plants reproduce. To the uninitiated, her close-up photographs of fruits & seeds could easily be mistaken for works of abstract art or images of contemporary sculpture. In fact, each portrait captures an oft-overlooked phase in a plant’s life cycle: the poignant moment between the death of a blossom, and the germination of a new generation. The works illustrate the staggering diversity of textures & forms that have evolved to nurture & disperse a plant’s seeds. Drawing on the botanical heritage of scientific illustration & photography, Laurent’s work serves as a reminder of the diversity, beauty & fragility of the natural world.
