Weed

A collection of weeds sampled from four major traffic routes in Woodstock and photographed in studio.

There is something perpetual about a weed; a plant that has an eternal and almost omnipotent presence about it. Subject to the context of its existence, the weed is an unwanted plant, a survivor, invader or killer under constant surveillance and maintenance. For this exhibition I wanted to work with the weed as an inhabitant of the city; resilient, persistent and resourceful. These photographs lapse between being portraits and still life studies of some of the weeds I have collected whilst living in and moving through Woodstock.
