22 Sep No Two Alike
Karl Blossfeldt, Francis Bruguiere, Thomas Ruff
Not Two Alike reintroduces a precious collection of a 1929 exhibition of cut-paper abstractions and exposures by American photographer Francis Bruguière (18791945) and plant photographs by German sculpture Karl Blossfeldt (18651932), which was held at the Warren Gallery in London to celebrate the launch of their two books Art Forms in Nature and Beyond This Point. The collection is complemented with photograms and negatives by contemporary artist Thomas Ruff. The current publication is released for the upcoming exhibition Not Two Alike (21 Sep 2018-13 Jan 2019) taking place at this years Cincinnati”s FotoFocus Biennial, the largest gathering of its kind in America. The book is delicately designed, comprising two folders flaunting sepia-toned photographs to give the viewer a sense that each image is not simply reproduced but really lived in.
