Written by Magnus Edmondson, Photographed by India Hobson
In their debut book, photographers India Hobson and Magnus Edmondson take you on a worldwide journey through their favourite botanical spaces. Perfect for garden and design lovers, and armchair travellers of all ages.
The Haarkon Greenhouse Tour, a conceptual photoseries project by India and Magnus--the creators of Haarkon, began as a self-initiated adventure in Oxford's botanic garden four years ago. Since then, Magnus and India have visited countless locations in the UK, Europe, America, Asia, and beyond in search of dream glasshouses and greenhouses, capturing dramatic palm houses, tropical hothouses, and private potting sheds along the way.
Divided into seven thematic chapters--History, Specimen, Community, Research, Pleasure, Hobbyist and Architecture--the featured spaces in Glasshouse Greenhouse are depicted via a series of evocative photographs that draw out the style, plant collections, and character of each space. Glasshouse Greenhouse fuses together a myriad of cultures and countries under one glass roof.
