About Botanica:

Over the past four years I have been photographing trees and foliage at night. But I didn’t index out with this aim. I was working on images of buildings for another series and found these plants and trees in the course of that work and shot them for my own pleasure.

The subject of these photos is related to my other projects, but is very different at the same time. I am interested in the hidden and unseen corners of cities, and all of the photographs in this book were taken in places that have been neglected or forgotten about, next to or near motorways, around factories and industrial estates. Every city has places like these. Everybody knows about them yet nobody pays special attention to them. This is partly why I like them so much.

About Tunnels:

Tunnels is a series of images showing lines of light. The lines change the appearance of the stone walls photographed completely, creating a sense of depth that really isn't there.

About the Artist:

Sander Meisner was born in 1979 and currently lives and works in Amsterdam. Wandering through the edges of our cities, looking for colour and beauty in the desolate corners of grey, man-made structures, he photographs the (sleeping) infrastructure of the urban environment.

Sander Meisner is represented by Galerie Brandt, Amsterdam.

Press:

HotShoe - "The results, often shot through trees with ghosts of passing cars or glowing streetlights in the distance, reveal a space previously neglected: the stretch of land that is part of a city yet feels, through Meisner's images, like a separate space altogether."

It's Nice That - "A beautifully realised volume of urban landscape photography, it approaches its subject with an unusual twist."

Urbanautica - "The presence of trees becomes the main subject and through them Meisner establishes the dialogue - which we often find in his work but here in a more intimate way - between urbanization and its physical infrastructure."

American Suburb X - "Botanica’s photographs...skillfully transform solitary spaces into glowing, wildly lit portraits packed with form and color."

Aesthetica - "a book of stunning photography..."
