The Plant Magazine – Issue 20
Besides providing botanical contents in a simple, personal and cozy way; The Plant offers plant lovers a new look at greenery by featuring the works of many creative people who share our love for plants.
As a curious observer of ordinary plants and other greenery, the magazine presents a monograph on a specific plant; bringing together photographers, illustrators, designers, musicians, writers and visual artists, both established and emerging, from all over the world. These people share with The Plant their unique perceptions and experiences of plants.
The Plant magazine is pleased to release a new issue with three upbeat covers: dreamy landscapes by Marcelo Gomes; the flowers of Disneyland by Alasdair Mclellan and portrait of octogenarian artist Herman de Vries by Juergen Teller.
In this issue:
As the days are getting shorter and the nights longer, the 2023 autumn/winter issue of THE PLANT magazine arrives like an invitation todream, with three covers capturing the spirit of the new season: a vi-brant abstraction by photographer Lena C. Emery; a surreal mundanedelirium brought to life by German artist Amelie von Wulffen, and a scene from “Conte d’Automne”, a story by Ana Roque and Bambou Roger Kwong.
The pages of issue 20 are filled with a thoughtful collection ofstories and encounters, each meant to go beyond borders and redrawour vision of the future. This the case in Claire Touzard’s conversa-tion about current-day dilemmas with the unorthodox philosopherEmanuele Coccia; and in Dal Chodha’s exploration of the work of tex-tile artist Celia Pym in a feature photographed by Deo Suveera and Pamela Dimitrov.
You’ll also be taken on a scenic stroll around the English country-side with Margaret Howell, as told by Lucy Kumara Moore in Walks of Life; encounter the free-spirit ceramist Shun Kadohashi; explore Mat-thew McLean’s view of Nan Goldin’s work; and discover Ramdane Touhami’s hiking staples, photographed by Scheltens & Abbenes.
As a reminder of brighter times there are plenty of tales about flow-ering blooms and dream-like gardens: Takashi Homma’s portraits ofthe “New Botanical Order”, a series styled by Shotaro Yamaguchi; Alessandro Furchino Capria and Hisato Tasaka’s fashion approachto our “Immediate Environment”; a visit of Dubuffet’s Jardin d’émail; Ola Rindal’s bright memories from last summer; and our regular Loose Leaves section with stories by Elein Fleiss, Farmacy Kitchen,Le Palais Idéal, Lasting Impressions and Conie Vallese.
