Polymer photogravure print "Virginia Tickseed" by John Pearson
Virginia Stickseed
Polymer Photogravure
9.75 x 13.2 inches

I photographed stems of stickseed growing near the Pine Needles cabin. I made plates of two of those photos, printing one over of the other in contrasting colors. While working on the print I was struck by how similar the shapes were to those of algae I'd seen in the St. Croix Research Station image collection.
