An unexamined life (2019)
Through the process of natural selection, plants have evolved the means to produce a vast and complicated array of chemical compounds in order to deter predators. Amongst them is the human species, a race that has been wandering the earth exploiting and dominating its surroundings for ages. There is however more to the natural beauty of our earth than meets the eye.
An unexamined life is a photographic research of four common plants and its rich scientific, historical and deadly background.
Poison Hemlock, conium maculatum
Jimson Weed, Datura Stramonium
Opium poppy, Papaver Somniferum
Foxglove, Digitalis Purpurea
