About the project:

“Dispersal” is a collection of botanic photography, and a study of plant design, specifically seeds & seed pods. Individually, each photograph is a portrait of a unique botanic specimen; as a series, the photographs become an inquiry into the evolution and diversity of plant design. // The photographs are published in my column at PRINT magazine, where I write about a seed pod’s form & function, as well as a bit about the plant’s ecology and ethnobotany. The project will be compiled as a forthcoming book. Currently, the series is available for exhibition. I am indebted to all botanic gardens and arboretums that have partnered with the project, including Harvard’s Arnold Arboretum, Berkeley Botanical Garden, Genna Walska’s Lotusland, and the Hawaiian Tropical Botanic Garden. If you’re interested in prints from my show at the Arnold Arboretum, please see this list and send me an email.




About the prints:

All photographs are printed in limited edition, processed with archival pigment inks and a lustre finish. Framed prints include the artist’s signature, the edition number, and the plant’s common and Latin names, inscribed on the mat. All are custom framed with museum-quality matte black Nielsen Bainbridge metal frames, 4-ply acid-free archival mat board, and UV protected plexiglass. Frame dimensions: 8″x10″ print, 12″x14″ frame; 11″x14″ print, 17″x20″ frame; 16″x20″ print, 24″x28″ frame. Unframed prints include a certificate with the edition number, the artist’s signature, and the plant’s common and Latin names. Please allow 1-2 weeks for unframed prints, and 2-3 weeks for framed prints. Questions? Many specimens in the galleries are also available as prints, just let me know: anna@annalaurent.com.
