Hill Close Gardens, Caitriona Dunnett

€6.00
DESCRIPTION

Hill Close Gardens captures the timelessness of one of the last groups of the detached Victorian pleasure gardens in the UK. The gardens date back to 1845 and were tended by tradesmen. They fell into disrepair and were saved from development by local residents. The plots have been fully restored by volunteers to address the planting of their original owners.

The gardens were invested in, lost, and then recreated. Each generation of gardener brought with them a layer of history. Dunnett developed a multi-layered process to engage with the gardens past. She printed and toned cyanotypes with pomegranate referencing 19th century painting and photography.

She was drawn to narratives of the tradesmen and photographed their landscaped plots and summerhouses. Whispers, tales from different times flourish amongst the hedged plots and Dunnett recalled lost gardens from her childhood. The project was supported by Grain Photography Hub.
