Andrew Zuckerman's first job was photographing weed for High Times Magazine; the intoxicating plant is revisited here. Cannabis sativa was shot at Oaksterdam, a pot-growing school in California run by a leader of the Cannabis reform movement (the school was raided by federal officials only a few weeks later). Included in Zuckerman's 2012 book Flower, the photograph is subtly inserted among beautiful yet benign exotic flowers - suggesting that Cannabis may not be so different from a rose or an orchid.
Framing option is white painted wood, 3/4" wide flat face and 1" deep, with UV acrylic glass.
