I’m a fan of mysterious photographs, packed with symbolism, whose exact meaning eludes me. I can really appreciate this way of working in the series, Histoires Naturelles, by French artist Juliette Bates. I love the juicy, velvety blacks and creamy whites; the simple, exact compositions; and the consistency and repetition of colors and textures in these images, as well as the perfect clarity of the glass domes photographed. This series, which makes me think of newer ParkeHarrisons work, could have me looking for days.

In its thirty year history, the grounds have housed thousands of different types of flora, becoming a notable research center for the college as well as an educational facility for the general public. Urban was drawn not only to the main greenhouse but also to a secondary rounded structure containing plants native to the Equator that require extreme heat and humidity to survive.
