Garden Stories, Hidden Labours. A series of accidental still lives, made around the glasshouses, potting sheds and scullery of a country house. The images seek to make visible the unseen work of the gardeners. The settings depicted and revealed in these photographs refer to worldly processes: the inferred eventual death of the plant alludes to our own. These images speak softly, of the ordinariness in the extra ordinary: conception, birth, life, ageing, and death.
