Suburban Herbarium | William Arnold

Regular price £14.00

The Suburban Herbarium presents us with a series of one hundred black and white plates of plants, grasses and ferns found on one small geographical plot on the outskirts of Truro - a slice of unofficial countryside, a hybrid of rural and urban, that Arnold walks on his lunchtime breaks.


These are the overlooked plants that grow in the cracks and nooks. Arnold presents them here in a style that resembles old-style negatives, a style that reminds us of the very origins of photography while also raising the everyday and invisible to the sublime.

With a foreword by British author and naturalist Mark Cocker, and an essay by British curator and author Val Williams placing the work within the historical context of botanical photography.
