I need your help finding subjects for a project I’m starting this spring/summer. I’m looking to photograph gardeners in their gardens.
What is a garden? My concept of a garden is very open-ended. It can be anything from a sprawling lush paradise to a single plant growing in a coffee can. Gardens include but are not limited to: community gardens, allotments, backyards, balconies, rooftops, front yards, containers on a patio or street corner, store windows, fire escapes, windowsills, guerilla gardens….
Define gardener? A person who grows and/or cultivates a plant or plants. I want to document as many types of gardens and gardeners as possible… gardener’s of all ages, nationalities, genders, and experience levels…
Please email me: Your contact info, a few words about the garden and the gardener, city, and when you think the garden is at its prime or you like it best.
Note that I don’t drive so I may not be able to make it to your location at this time. However I will be in the following cities in 2006: Chicago (next week!), Toronto (always), San Francisco (July), New York (Sept), Miami (Dec).
