 Natures Negatives is a project exploring up-close plant fossils housed in the Auckland and Whanganui museums in New Zealand. These images laid down in stone eons ago exist as the original negatives, the modern day photographic process echoing these ancient rock etchings.  The plant fossils photographed here are a range of ferns, and monocotyledons and dicotyledons, or flowering plants. Now extinct, their geological period spanned 250 to 65 million years ago. These specimens were collected from NZ localities such as Campbell Island in the sub-Antarctic islands, Mataura falls in Southland and Port Waikato on the west coast of central North Island.  Many thanks to the Auckland and Whanganui museums.
