Hermannshof Exhibition

Hermannshof, Weinheim, Germany hosts my first UV Flower exhibit from Jun 21st onwards for some weeks now in its Greenhouse. It is an invited presentation for their 25 year anniversary to celebrate the opening of the former, more than 200 year old park belonging to the Freudenberg dynasty, to the public.

30 of my works are shown, comprising visible, reflected UV, UV induced visible fluorescence and simulated bee vision shots. The exhibition may bee seen from 10 - 19h every day and there are also some plates about bee / insect vision to explain the science behind it (courtesy Prof. Lars Chittka; thanks Lars!).

Irrespectively of that exhibit, it is a wonderful park right in the center of Weinheim and worth a visit any time of the year as is the historic city itself.
