Dan Pearson, Dierama pulcherrimum, Somerset
“For this series I shot at the homes, studios, work places and gardens of Dan Pearson, Margaret Howell, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Molly Goddard, Jeremy Lee, Maggi Hambling, Penny Rimbaud, Juergen Teller, Amanda Harlech, Isabella Tree, Olivia Harrison, John Pawson, Charlie McCormick, Alice Vincent, Alys Fowler, and at Charleston with the plants of Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell. I am grateful to everyone involved for their hospitality and participation.
The final work shows each still life portrait alongside photographs from some of the homes and workplaces of the participants. These accompanying images capture the temporary ‘studios’ I built at each location. Everything is photographed on film at locations throughout England.”
