Grass is a plant familiar to us all, yet the beauty of individual grasses and the seemingly endless grasslands to be found all over our planet go largely unnoticed. For more than two years, Ingo Arndt travelled the world, photographing temperate, tropical and wet grasslands and their inhabitants. His travels took him to such far-away places as the prairies and the Everglades of North America, the South American pampa, China’s largest bamboo forest, the Mongolian steppes, the African savannah, the Tibet plateau and the world’s largest reed- beds, in Romania. His landscape photos are supplemented by selected detail shots of the various types of grass. By reducing them to the quintessential, Ingo Arndt reveals the fundamental beauty of these seemingly inconspicuous plants.
