Seeds: on the origin of food crops
On the origin of food crops
"In this book, Jos Jansen examines how innovative food crops are developed and how this process bears upon the world food problem. SEEDS is about Darwin's natural selection and how it has long been overtaken by high-tech plant breeding. The project focuses on the aspect of how new food crops that are resistant to pests and diseases are bred, and therefore contribute significantly to our future food supply." –From the artist. Color photographs that both document and question plant production techniques in the food industry, examine the relationship between humans, nature, and evolution with images that highlight repetition, texture, and the intersection of nature and science. Includes essay by Bas Haring. Edition of 500.
