I worked on an allotment series in Richmond for Gardeners’ World magazine between 2008-10. The adjacent plot was looked after by a very quiet Irishman, Michael Hobbs, who I got to know during my frequent visits. I loved his plot, which was like a 1960’s back garden, complete with gnomes and ornamental frogs, and I frequently left with handfuls of spare fruit, veg or flowers. These unpublished portraits were taken in 2010 after my last visits for GW.

Alys Fowler on her allotment, 2.11.12. Some test shots taken whilst playing with ideas, talking and drinking tea. I don’t think any from this small set have been used, but I’ve always been fond of them.
