Besides providing botanical contents in a simple, personal and cozy way, The Plant offers to plant lovers a new look on greenery by featuring the works of creative people who also love plants. As a curious observer of ordinary plants and other greenery, the magazine presents a monographic on a specific plant and brings together photographers, illustrators, designers, musicians, writers and visual artists, both established and emerging, from all over the world, to share with The Plant their perceptions and experiences around plants.
Issue 15 explores New York Central Park captured by Parisian photographer Brigitte Lacombe; Hans Ulrich Obrist interviews Formafantasma, the designer duo who has explored our relation with timber for an exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery in London.
