I like to capture a gardener’s-eye view – up close and personal, plants revealing their personalities with the bend of a stem here, the twist of a petal there. Communities of plants help to make a garden – sure, it’s important to record details of morphology and habit, but how a plant relates to its neighbours can tell us just as much. So, close…but not too close – context, after all, is key. And people in frame where I can – a garden needs people.
