Laurie Tennent

Laurie Tennent captures detailed botanical images with her camera that push beyond traditional photography. Tennent collaborates with conservationists and botanists to collect rare specimens and promote awareness for endangered species of flora. “With an acute sensitivity to today’s persistent digital noise, Tennent’s collection of intimate portraits command attention by returning us to our most primitive and organic roots. Isolating delicate living structures and amplifying them on a massive scale transports the viewer to a serene space where we are encouraged to breathe and to reconnect with the simple beauty of these objects.”
