Urban Flora A photography project by Frank Multari

Photographed primarily in Brooklyn, New York, Urban Flora is a series that explores the space shared by nature and human utility on the smallest scale: a city block.

On its face it reads as an index of organic and inorganic matter in a world that humans have conspired to transform beyond recognition, and there is a great focus on incidental conglomerations of plant life and discarded objects. But in spirit these are meditations on unconventional beauty and the delight I take in discovering the incongruities and imperfections of my lived-in urban environment.

I have taken pictures of the most voluptuous bulbs and blooms that Bronx Botanical Garden has to offer and they will never see the light of day. A photograph of sickly white flowers and a hazard barrel says much more about the place where I live my life and is simply more beautiful to my eyes. -Frank Multari
