Art Brokerage: Jonathan Singer American Artist: Photographer Jonathan Singer was born in the 1960s. Using novel digital camera techniques that did not exist ten years ago, Singer has created masterpieces of photographic art. Inspired by the work of the great botanical artists that came before him, Dr. Singer has developed a style of modern digital photography that possesses both the clarity and the artistry of traditional botanical illustration. Revealing the delicate structures of the plants at a level of detail unachievable with brush and paint, BOTANICA MAGNIFICA provides an entirely new appreciation of the complexity and individuality of these living beings. To see a photograph by Jonathan Singer is to transcend the medium and see the subject itself. The subject is so intriguing to our imaginations that we forget we are looking at a photograph and begin a deeper journey into the botanical world. Just as the finest classical painters attempted to make their brushstrokes (hence their presence) invisible, Jonathan photographs his subjects with clarity and humility, becoming an instrument serving a larger force. Singer's work is featured in the permanent collection at the Smithsonian Institution's Museum of Natural History.
