This documentary exhibition charts the upsurge in Britain's cut-flower industry, with stunning portraits of the woman who are growing flowers in a sustainable way.

About

Britain is a nation of flower lovers with the cut-flower industry worth over two billion pounds a year, with many cut flowers travelling epic distances to reach weddings and mantelpieces. In recent times a number of British flower farms have sprung-up, fueled by a growing interest in locally grown and seasonal produce. Tessa’s exhibition explores this new movement for ‘fair trade in flowers’ and celebrates domestic growers part and present. In a series of stunning photographs, Tessa sheds light on the individuals who are contributing to a vibrant, artisan cut-flower industry in the U.K.
