I recently purchased this beautiful exhibition catalogue for my mom’s birthday gift featuring the colorful, Rorschach Test-like photograms of flowers by the esteemed Los
Angeles-based conceptual photographer, James Welling. Welling placed the blossoms of a common southern
California plant on sheets of 8×10 film and exposed them to light. The
negatives were then projected onto special photo paper through a color
mural enlarger and color filters, to produce the dramatic, spectral,
almost sun- or moon-dappled images reproduced here. See more about the book here or see some of the prints here.
