Jimmy Fike: Edible Botanicals
A Photographic Survey of the Wild Edible Botanicals of North America
Jimmy Fike’s wonder-filled photographic archive exquisitely depicts North America’s rich trove of wild edible flora. The botanicals transcend scientific illustration– they seem to awaken trying to communicate with the viewer. The plants illustrate a cycle of death and rebirth, psychopomps, guiding viewers through a process of psychological transformation. Mr. Fike’s photography directs viewers to free food that can be used for sustenance. Recognizing plants anew outside the gallery and eating the plants is living art, a dynamic extension to his photographic project.
