This is the blog for my 3409 major project. I will be visiting various allotments and documenting the people and things that I find. The reason I have chosen allotments as my subject is because I have always found them to be fascinating places. I love there hand built qualities and there strange character. I decided to create this body of work when passing many plots on my way into London on visits to my girlfriend. I thought they would be fascinating places full of colourful characters. I plan to visit a site near my house to do a test shoot and see what kind of images I can get. I plan to approach the project as a documentary of these places using portraiture and landscapes to capture there unique quality. I love the idea of photographing something so everyday and making people look at it in a different light.
