An Art That Nature Makes

Special Premiere Screening!

Subject Rosamond Purcell in Person!

(2015) dir Molly Bernstein w/Rosamond Purcell
Finding unexpected beauty in the discarded and decayed, photographer Rosamond Purcell has developed a body of work that has garnered international acclaim, graced the pages of National Geographic and over 20 published books, and has enlisted admirers such as Jonathan Safran Foer, Errol Morris and Stephen Jay Gould. AN ART THAT NATURE MAKES details Purcell’s fascination with the natural world – from a mastodon tooth to a hydrocephalic skull – offering insight into her unique way of recontextualizing objects both ordinary and strange into sometimes disturbing but always breathtaking imagery.

NYT Critics Pick NYT Critics’ Pick “Illuminating…certainly haunting, but too beautiful to be morbid.” – New York Times

“An excellent cinematic presentation of Purcell’s mesmerizing photographs” – Hollywood Reporter
