Mossbrook Court (2010)
“You’ll find a couple of the plants in the next block in Vauxhall Court that actually used to be in my balcony. You have to release your children, if you follow me.” Gary and Steve, Cheetham, Manchester.
From the series Blooming Britain.
Striving for the pastoral idyll is one of the UK’s most popular pastimes. Blooming Britain documents competitive amateur gardeners around the country. It’s an inquiry into the dynamics between public display and the gardener's social standing; gardens are a blank canvas for people’s stories and imagery.
“We were especially interested in communities from post-industrial towns and cities that didn’t have a great deal of space to create a garden. It seems despite personal economics or space available, people still look for a way to express themselves and find an aesthetic.”
The images have been exhibited around the world as large-scale outdoor installations. The exhibition toured to the four RHS gardens in Surrey, Essex, Devon and Harrogate. It was shown at the Chelsea Flower Show, exhibited alongside the Regent’s Canal, London, in downtown Vancouver and the Botanical Gardens in Berlin.
For the first time the images are now available as limited edition prints.
