The Plant, issue 16
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.
"Issue 16 comes with titillating flowers lying on the pavement captured by Harley Weir in Doom and Bloom; Jack Davison’s blossoming dreams; and a homage to the majesty and stillness of Mount Fuji, a collaborative feature including images by Nobuyoshi Araki, Wolfgang Tillmans, Brigitte Lacombe, and Chris Rhodes among others.
We’ve been flying kites in South-East France and visiting rural Mozambique through Cassi Namoda’s paintings. Amy Sherlock meets Alice Waters and Fanny Singer at their Berkeley family garden. In Seasonal Harvest, Matthieu Lavanchy, Sarah de Mavaleix, and Clarisse Demory show how food arrives at our homes, which is also the theme of a report by photographer Clara Balzary and activist Leydy Rangel on California farmworkers. Another story echoes Ruth Asawa’s passion for growing, as recalled by Hettie Judah.
We follow Laura Hawkins’s correspondence with Wright Le Chapelain on the creation of their latest collection. We delve into artist Isabella Killoran’s mystical rituals connecting with nature and we invite young Mongolian artist Nomka Enkhee to illustrate some playful pages as an introduction to our regular Loose Leaves section."
