Jennifer Gutierrez Morgan | Chasing Flora: The Pursuit of Health
I am intrigued by the relationship between Los Angeles residents and the rich biodiversity that exists within our geographic region. I seek to explore human culture and its inextricable connection to nature, while specifically focusing on the botanical elements that allow for our survival as a species. The visual imagery includes a small fraction of the diverse species found in and around the Grand Park and Downtown Los Angeles areas. While Grand Park hosts over 140 species which represent a portion of the world’s six floristic provinces, such plants serve to represent the global diversity of our Los Angeles community.
