9783836514507: Herbarium Amoris: Floral Romance

The beauty of plants and their sexuality
The notion of plant sexuality was initiated by Swedish botanist and physician Carl Linnaeus (1707 1778). Working with his collection of over 20,000 specimens, Linnaeus grouped flowers and plants in a Calendarium Florae, and systematically classified plant species by the number and arrangement of their reproductive parts, drawing direct parallels with human sexual organs. Highly controversial at the time, the assertion that a plant s stamens and pistils mirror human genitalia resulted in a 'sexual revolution' in plant taxonomy.
Swedish photographer Edvard Koinberg creates a modern visual counterpart to Linnaeus s work, approaching the subject with equal passion and dedication. Having cultivated several hundred plants in his country house, Koinberg photographs each delicate bloom in his studio under perfect lighting conditions, depicting the life cycle of various flora as they bud, flourish and wane, resulting in a modern Calendarium Florae, a visual calendar that charts the year through flowers.
In Herbarium Amoris, Koinberg captures the lyricism and refulgent eroticism of the floral world in vivid close-ups, shot against dark backgrounds, the dew glittering on outspread petals, the most delicate of vegetal forms infused with unbridled life force.

About the Author :

Edvard Koinberg, born 1964 in Stockholm, Sweden, photographs plants in the artistic tradition of Sweden's Enlightenment and Dutch painters from the 17th and 18th centuries. His work has been exhibited extensively throughout Europe, the USA, Russia, China, Indonesia, South Africa, and Australia.

Tore Frängsmyr, born 1938, was professor of scientific history at Uppsala University, Sweden. A former director of the Center for History of Science at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, his books include Linnaeus: The Man and His Work. He is a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Letters, History and Antiquities.
Henning Mankell, born 1948 in Stockholm, is a widely renowned Swedish crime writer, occasional children s author, and dramatist. While living in Mozambique, he retains close ties to his native country. He is an admirer of Carl Linnaeus, perhaps the most outstanding figure of Scandinavia's Enlightenment era.

Review :

"Since 1999, I have collected pictures of plants. It has become a kind of photographic herbarium. The inspiration comes from Carl Linnaeus's writings about the reproduction of plants and I have tried to approach the subject with the same curiosity and eagerness as he clearly had". "Linnaeus was free and poetic in both his speech and his text. He compared the sexuality of plants and humans as a pedagogic tool and he certainly was not shy! My aim has been to make pictures as Linnaeus himself would have done if he had access to our time's photographic techniques and to give Linnaeus insights into plant's sexuality a present-day shape." - Edvard Koinberg"
