Double Take: Photography and the Garden brought together photographs by Gertrude Jekyll (1843-1932) with work by leading contemporary artists Sarah Jones, Helen Sear and Mark Edwards, all of whom have recorded a garden or returned to the theme of plants and gardens and whose work resonates with the historic gardens at Hestercombe.
By showing Gertrude Jekyll’s photographs alongside work by contemporary artists, Double Take: Photography and the Garden will explore the richness of Jekyll’s artistic vision and her enthusiastic embrace of photography’s potential. The work on display will also demonstrate the ongoing lure of the garden for photographers and the remarkable variety of ways in which the camera can add depth to our enjoyment of the garden and help us to see familiar landscapes anew.
The exhibition was curated by Kate Best.
