Swedish photographer Edvard Koinberg has created a visual counterpart to Carl Linnaeus’ 18th century work on plant sexuality with his new book Edvard Koinberg: Herbarium Amoris. Linnaeus worked with a collection of 20,000 plants and grouped them according to sexual organs, drawing parallels to human anatomy, a concept that formed the basis for Edvard's plant photography. The book is available now at TASCHEN.
