Suburban Garden

Suburban Garden
2009–present

The Suburban Garden series (begun in 2009–current) photography consists of images inspired by a further investigation of landscaped nature. I am interested in the human interventions and aesthetics found in street side gardens. I appreciate both the quality of the saccharine sentimentality of these spaces and the sincere expression of the gardener’s sense of beauty and care of the plants. I enjoy the play between a “natural” palette and the incredible super saturated colors of the flowers. Seeing bits of particular facades and surroundings lend a sense of place to these constructed environments. These gardens too, evoke time and passage as they evolve from full bloom to fade.
