The starting point for Erik Niedling's Formation series is a rediscovered collection of 1920s glass negatives containing photographs of plants. Niedling studied the plates, reproduced them and made new, large-format prints. Are these images positives or negatives, documents or works of art, historical materials or new artistic creations?
