The Hidden Beauty of Seeds & Fruits
The Botanical Photography of Levon Biss
Friday 28 May - Sunday 26 September 2021
Feast your eyes on stunning, macro-photographic studies of seeds and fruits from the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh’s Herbarium Collection.
The result of months spent searching through RBGE’s specimens, Levon Biss captures the breath-taking details of the world of carpology, the study of seeds and fruits. Each image reveals minute features, textures and shapes that are normally invisible to the naked eye, providing a unique insight into this crucial resource for botanical science, and striking and bizarre adaptations that have evolved over thousands of years.
Supported by players of People's Postcode Lottery.
Open daily from 10am, 28 May - 26 September 2021.
Venue: Ground floor temporary exhibition area, John Hope Gateway
