The Arbitrary Observation of Plants
A photobook, part of the Value of Plants.
The book observes Kew Garden visitors and their desperate attempts to capture plants on camera. Many photographed species can be bought at local supermarkets and even be considered weeds. The book was designed as a facsimile of The Observers Book series, playing with the concept of observing plants. The pages contain photographs displaying positions in which a visitor to Kew can observe plants, ranging from the traditional standing position to the prayer position and full-backwards lean.
Only two copies were printed, one copy was bought by a London-based design studio.
