I’m going to photograph at Westonbirt Arboretum, as inspiration I had a little read of this paper: GARDEN HISTORY – CULTURAL AND HISTORICAL GEOGRAPHIES OF THE ARBORETUM.

I will be giving a talk at the University of Nottingham, School of Geography as part of their research seminar program.


For any queries about the seminar please contact: Stephen.Legg@nottingham.ac.uk

The School is at the forefront of research into Cultural Geography. Work by Stephen Daniels , David Matless, Briony McDonagh, Susanne Seymour and Charles Watkins has explored the relationship between the design, representation and experience of landscape and the formation of personal, local, national and imperial identities in England from the 16th century to the present day. This longstanding English focus in work at Nottingham has been supplemented by Alex Vasudevan’s research on the landscapes of contemporary photography
