The is my second book, the first being The Flower Show 2008, also available from blurb.
2009 was definitely the year of the wellie! Let's just say it rained...
Why the flower show? Well, botanical subjects got me hooked early on, colours, shapes, patterns and so on. Then I dicovered street photography. An amazing and all consuming not to mention vast subject. The flower show is where botanical meets street. The people dress in such wacky ways, letting their personalities show to all. They are also SO engrossed in their passion that they never seem to spot me, plus the fact that everbody has a camera. Marquees and mature trees become the buildings and the steel walk ways become the roads.
This book will be limited to a maximum of 100 copies, and signed copies are available direct from the gallery. There will also be 10 Photographer Editions which include a signed and numbered print available from the gallery. See you at RHS Tatton 2010. Phillip.
