This collection shares several images of plants.  These are often intimate views of a leaf or seed pod using a macro lens.  For me, plants are full of intricate details which can hold a viewer's gaze.  Sometimes it's the unique shape or color which makes the image, but often I like a touch of raindrops or the morning dew.

Evidence-based Design

Through Evidence-based Design, researchers are confirming what people already observe, green plants present a calming effect on humans.  Since green, lush plants promote healing and produce calming effects on humans, they serve as perfect subjects in healthcare art, hospitality art, and corporate art settings.


A pertinent term in this approach is biophilia, which recognizes the innate human attraction to natural surroundings and the stress-reducing effects plants provide people.  I've selected these images of plants that meet this approach.
