Lorenzo Vitturi at The Photographers’ Gallery, London.

Here’s a show I’ll be doing soon on Sunday 1st December. There will be lots of new framed and unframed prints. More details at http://modernshows.com/
Grand Designs. Channel 4 Television.
Here’s one of my framed images – Aster 1, size 30″ x 30″ – which was shown on last night’s broadcast of Grand Designs on Channel 4. The images on the program itself show an incredible transformation from the site which I saw when I went to deliver the work. It looked like a V2 rocket had hit it! I think the owners, despite the excitement of the project, are now mightily relieved that all the work is complete and that they can finally get a decent night’s sleep. I much enjoyed the hilarious footage of them planted the sedum/succulents/wild flowers on the roof.
Dock seed heads, London.
Walking along Cornish sections of the South West Coast Path in late summer, the deep rusty colours of Dock seed heads were a constant source of temptation for blog photography (see previous entry). Funnily enough though, here in London, riding along a green path which takes the route of the old Peckham branch of the Grand Surrey Canal, these large specimens of Rumex crispus (Curled Dock, Curly Dock, Yellow Dock, Sour Dock, Narrow Dock, Garden Patience Narrow-leaved Dock) have looked stunning these last few weeks, standing out from a meadow of handsome weeds as I turn right off the path on to Glengall Road. I’ve just done a bit of research on the path ( Surrey Canal Path) and the stretch I ride along has been amusingly re-branded The Surrey Linear Canal Park. It’s a rather tidy walkway but my eye is always drawn by those unkempt, neglected areas where weeds can spread out and really show what they can do.
Cornwall, August 2013.
The striking colours here of Rumex Obtusifolius (Dock). This is one of a series of photographs taken on and around the Cornish Coastal Path in late summer. The full set of images is on my Facebook page facebook.com/kevinduttonphotography.
Fleurs du Roi, Versailles.
For anyone in the Versailles area, this exhibition of botanical art is worth a visit. The show includes watercolours on vellum, paintings and also features a newly replanted scented garden. It’s on until the end of September and is in the Grand Trianon, right next to Marie Antoinette’s famous estate. http://en.chateauversailles.fr/news-/events/expositions/fleurs-du-roi-en
