First edition. Jochen Lempert was born in 1958 and studied biology at the University of Bonn. He has worked with photography since the early 1990s, ‘engaged in an ongoing project that deals with the perception of nature and creatures within the blurry contexts of scientific research, subjective perception, and man-made environments. Birds and their feathering are also a recurring motif in Lempert’s work, although the full range of his observations extends way further... With his analogue black and white photographs he has produced a fascinating, complex, yet always also incomplete encyclopedia of morphological studies that consciously resist the taxonomic classifications of animals and plants.’
