The Art Of Cannabis: A Visual Tour

Overview

There are millions of images of marijuana plants and buds on the Internet, sold as prints and posters, and bound in books - but few bring new life to the subject. In this book, photographer Chris LaPrise offers a view of the plant through a different lens, capturing intricate detail through macro photography and using postproduction processes (including the creation of mirrored images) to produce highly artistic, hypnotic impressions of cannabis that don't actually exist, but are there to be found and brought into the light. While Chris appreciates the beauty of the plant as a whole, he feels that capturing extreme closeups produces images that stimulate the brain and activate the imagination. In the images in this evocative book, viewers will notice faces, shapes, and beings as the brain seeks to see more deeply and feed its desire to recognise and appreciate something different and unusual - but beautiful in its own right. AUTHOR: Author Chris LaPrise grows his own cannabis for medicine and is an avid nature photographer who has been taking photographs for more than 40 years. He's happy to combine these skills in an art form he refers to as cannatography. Chris sites that attending Hash Bash in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and uniting with like-minded people who rallied to challenge unjust marijuana laws have been memorable parts of his personal journey. He fondly recalls being able to smoke with Chef Ra (a long-time cannabis rights advocate and cannabis foods writer) and later met up with Ed Rosenthal (horticulturist, author, publisher, cannabis grower and advocate for the legalization of marijuana use) and Elvy Mussika (the first person ever to use federally grown marijuana to treat her glaucoma) while she was being pushed in her wheelchair by Ed. The website Civilized.life recognized Chris for creating art that inspires, in Ophelia Chong's Unsung Cannabis Community Winners of 2017 list. 180 colour photographs
