Plot 36 is a body of work that explores the concept of allotments use in Dublin. In recent years, there has been a high demand and large waiting list to own a plot due to the numerous positive benefits working on an allotment brings to the people involved. The project documents the plot holders and explores their personal reasons for using these spaces. For some it's a source of home grown healthy food. For others, it's an escape from reality to enjoy the peace and quiet to develop a connection with the earth. These images aim to capture the essence of the allotment, and also the diversity of each unique space. What starts out as a plot of earth to plant seeds and grow products becomes a representation of the person working the plot.
