The Plant, issue 14
Besides providing botanical content in a simple, personal and cosy way; The Plant offers plant lovers a new look at greenery by featuring the works of many creative people who share our love for plants. As a curious observer of ordinary plants and other greenery, the magazine presents a monograph on a specific plant; bringing together photographers, illustrators, designers, musicians, writers and visual artists, both established and emerging, from all over the world. These people share with The Plant their unique perceptions and experiences of plants.
The 14th issue of The Plant magazine opens up with Young Voices, a story by photographer Sam Rock and Omaima Salem, captured during London’s first global climate strike. In the following pages, a conversation with writer Olivia Laing photographed by Kuba Ryniewciz, a journey to Charleston House in England’s East Sussex, beautifully captured by photographer Matthieu Lavanchy before visiting the new Covent Garden Flower Market, seen through the eyes of Chris Rhodes.
We follow Isabella Killoran as she leads us through the inner world of childhood, Camille Vivier and Sandra Berrebi team up to put together A Giving Tree and last but not least, Rainer Judd writes a letter from the Far West about how fire can be both a creator and a destroyer accompanied by Max Farago’s impressive photographs shot in California.
Regular contributor and photographer Marcelo Gomes guides us through a magical trip to New Zealand. We close the issue with the usual Loose Leaves section, featuring short and compelling stories by perfumer Lyn Harris, florist Doan Ly, chef Shuko Oda and wanderings around Lisboa’s Estufa Fría, Bialowieza forest and some fabulous Japanese playgrounds, amongst others.
