The human desire to record and document the world around us
Enabling new connections through nature printing
Since the beginning of time, the pressing urge of humans to leave a mark of their existence is attested by direct prints of their hands left in caves.
Hailed as the earliest precursor to photography, Nature Printing is the practice of taking impressions directly or indirectly from the surface of natural objects such as leaves, flowering plants, ferns, seaweed, snakeskin, and more, to produce an image on paper.
We are pleased to announce that the Capturing Nature exhibition at the Botanical Art Gallery, Singapore Botanic Gardens is now open. The exhibition on nature printing runs until 31 March 2024. Free entry
