Elizabeth Stein: Transformationsshowcases nineteen photographs based in nature. In each photograph, a detail of a single image is duplicated in a grid sixteen to twenty times—reversed, inverted, and flipped—to form a kaleidoscope of texture and color. Stein, a philanthropist, Chicago native, and former Bloomington High School art teacher, always enjoyed shooting pictures of animals and trees and clouds. “Nature photography was my bag,” she said.
