Violet is an exhibition by photographer and gardener James Meredew. Having worked at Trebah for over 10 years, James is now showing several bodies of work created within the garden.
Exhibiting for the first time is the ‘Trebah Garden at Night’ images; a series of photographs made at night using a flash gun throughout 2019.
Using both photography and film, the show will also play videos James has made using camera traps at night to document the wildlife that inhabit the garden. As well as this, is a series of portraits of the gardeners and volunteers that have contributed to Trebah over the years.
“I feel very grateful to be a gardener at Trebah and even more so to be constantly inspired to take photographs of the natural world, learn about the garden, its environment and history.”
Having studied photography at University, James now runs a publishing project called Ancient Magic Editions specialising in photography books and prints.
The exhibition is free to view with your pre-booked garden visit.
