Wild Edible Botanicals of North America

Future of Food

A photographic survey of the wild edible botanicals of North America is on display at the Polytechnic campus library today through Jan. 31, 2019.

The artist is Jim Fike, a photographer who excavates plants, photographs them in his studio and digitally illustrates the photographs. He then renders the edible elements in vibrant colors, leaving the rest of the plant to read as a contact print.

Fike has photographed more than 120 plants in 10 different states and plans to create a complete survey across the United States.

Exhibit runs Nov. 6, 2018, to Jan. 31, 2019
