Short Description: 
Deb Stoner on her Botanical Portraits at Camerawork Gallery
Guest host Kathleen Stephenson speaks with Deb Stoner about her show "Channeling Karl Blossfeldt" at the Camerawork Gallery.

Deb Stoner's botanical portraits magnify and reveal details within the natural structures of the plants she photographs. Her process of making images is a slow and deliberate arranging and composing of flora and natural insects in ways that imply growth and change. Up close, one is able to examine the parts of subjects that may reveal surprises. These new black and white photographs made for Camerawork Gallery's intimate space are made from some of Portland's ordinary, yet magnificent, neighborhood gardens.
