'Gardens' by Rebecca Omonira-Oyekanmi and Christina Theisen

12 GBP
GARDENS is a collection of photographs capturing unexpected, tucked-away garden spaces in London: Christina Theisen portrays landscapes of biodiversity that co-exist in harmony with their concrete, urban environment.

Rebecca Omonira-Oyekanmi's accompanying essay reveals the creators behind these spaces, their motivations, and why they believe the fight against the collapse of different ecosystems must start in our cities.

The gardeners in this book challenge the notion that cities are for business only. Instead they envisage a London where rivers of wildflower meadows invade the city's acres of cement, feeding bees and butterflies buzzing along the Thames, revitalising damaged ecosystems.

This is a new story of protest, one that involves ordinary people, whose seemingly small, individual efforts to save the planet collectively amount to a growing, powerful movement.
