REVIEW: Dornith Doherty at the Impressions Gallery, Bradford, UK

November 4, 2020 - Giovanna L. Costantini for Leonardo

The artwork, in the words of the writer Julio Cortázar, “is like the seed in which the giant tree lies sleeping.” From sunflower to rosehip, there may be no more metonymic sign for art than the seed, an embryonic kernel whose formation is part of vegetal reproduction that generates sustenance for life. Plants, the fruition of the seed, share with photography a light-driven process of development corresponding to photosynthesis.

I might not even see them at all, they appear so insignificant, like dust or lint from the inner reaches of a pocket. 

In a new exhibit at the Dayton Art Institute called “Archiving Eden”, photographer Dornith Doherty turns her lens to the critical issue of seed saving, and global efforts to conserve the world’s food sources. Her compositions use Xrays of seeds and plants along with documentary images from facilities around the world working to sustain the planet’s biodiversity...
