I am ashamed to say I didn’t know of the Garden Museum in Lambeth, London until I discovered this beautiful exhibition of botanical portraits by photographer Kate Friend. For this series, the artist chose to approach people who she’d wanted to meet and who have a relationship with flowers but aren’t gardeners themselves. Friend followed her instinct which took her to visit studios and homes of people whose work she respected and the result is stunning. Her favourite (and mine from the selects on the museum’s website) is Yurgen Teller’s strawberry.
