Share Tweet Email Reddit Flipboard WhatsApp Comments

Swedish photographer Edvard Koinberg has created a visual counterpart to Carl Linnaeus’ 18th century work on plant sexuality. Linnaeus worked with a collection of 20,000 plants and grouped them according to sexual organs, drawing parallels to human anatomy. It was a “sexual revolution” for plants. Koinberg dedicates his photographic efforts to documenting the life cycle of plants. The effort is apparent in Edvard Koinberg: Herbarium Amoris. Floral Romance. The book is out now from Taschen.
