allotment stories

‘Allotment Stories’ is a project that is still in development. In 2016 I visited several allotment holders on their plots, and documented my conversations with them about their story of growing, their experiences with this, and their relationship to their plot. These stories are a combination of personal histories, a complicated relationship with the animals and insects they encounter everyday, and a practical advice for those new to growing. My intention is to create an image for each allotment holder representing their story, and there is potential for a book that combines the practical and personal elements of the project.
