Since 1999, Buelteman has made extraordinary photographic images without the use of cameras, lenses, or computers. With photographic paper, plant life and electrical current, he captures the intricacies and structural secrets of his subjects. The process produces brilliantly lit portraits of plants and flowers, capturing their essence in a glowing, otherworldly blaze of color.
Buelteman has published nine photographic portfolios in his 25 years behind the camera, three of these, “A Vision of Life” (1988), “The Unseen Peninsula” (1994) and “Eighteen Days in June” (2000), have been published as books. His “Through the Green Fuse” book was based on a body of work he created at the Djerassi Residential Artists Program. Buelteman has enjoyed an active exhibition history and his work can be found in many prestigious collections, such as the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, the Santa Fe Institute, Stanford University and the Yale University Art Museum.
