Who: For more than 10 years, Easthampton artist-naturalist, Marty Klein, has been creating original artworks in the medium of scanography, using foraged, grown or found materials from the Pioneer Valley. Using a flatbed scanner as his camera, he composes objects - leaves, flowers, mushrooms, etc. on the glass and creates unique prints that display nature's wonders in rich colors and exquisite detail.
What gives Klein's work depth, is his intimacy with Nature, for he is a true naturalist, a man of the land. He sees.
