In Their Nature
“The allotment is a strange community, but it is definitely a community of sorts.” – Emily, Burnham-On-Sea. This project looks at allotments as a community. It shows how people work, rest and play in their allotments in ways that go beyond the original function of being a place to grow and provide food for towns during the world wars. This project documents three different allotments in the UK. It follows them throughout the winter and the hibernating stage. When everything has slowed down and been put to bed ready for the new growth, into the spring. I look at how allotments are used as places of growth, but also as places where people escape the confines of their home.
