New Image Gallery presents a show by Arizona photographer Ryan Parra titled Vivarium Foras (place of life outside), which explores Parra’s photographs of edible, medicinal and psychoactive plants growing throughout the Southwest. Parra’s art comes from a profound respect and curiosity about the way humans have used the plant life around them to heal and nourish themselves for thousands of years and how pharmacology continues to evolve. Parra has been photographing plant life since 2014, when Arizona State University commissioned him to document native medicinal plants. Since then, he has traveled to Joshua Tree National Park and Costa Rica to continue his research. He currently teaches at Mesa Community College and Arizona State University.
