On Allotments

On Allotments is my ongoing audio/video/photography project about UK allotments. So far, the project has resulted in two short films and a photo zine. I am currently working on a third short film, exploring the notion of the allotment as a radical space.

I have a long-standing love for the Super 8 film format, and I've always felt that the subject of allotments is something that is well suited to being shot on film. Here's another tiny film that I made, many years ago, about allotments in Edinburgh.

As part of the project, I am  currently searching for home movies (film or video) from the 1950s to the 1990s, featuring people working on their plots. If you anything that might fit that description, I would love to hear from you.
