Beth Chatto biography

Pleased to see my portrait of Beth Chatto used on the cover of her biography, written by Catherine Horwood. The book will be launched in September 2019 at The Garden Museum, but is available to order in advance on Amazon, or from the publisher, Pimpernel. (Sorry for being old fashioned, but the term ‘to pre-order’ is just wrong!).

An alternate view

These are experimental shots I’ve taken over the last few days, and are tests for a project I’m currently researching. They happen to be taken in my back garden. As I haven’t done any gardening since mid-summer, most things appear to be dead – even the things you would expect to be alive. I suppose this style of gardening is best described as non-interventionist – but it leads to some great photographic opportunities!
