'Photographer Vicky captures a haven of peace
Photographer Vicky Smith is hoping her latest exhibition will offer people a
snapshot of life in Haringey.
Vicky ... is showing her Escape Routes exhibition at Bruce Castle Museum,
Lordship Lane, Tottenham.
The show features images of allotment owners from all over Haringey...
Vicky chose to photograph allotment holders as a way of showing the
diversity of people in Haringey.
She said: "The area's rich social and ethnic diversity is reflected not just
in the produce and the shed design, but in the plot owners themselves."
She also wanted to help people realise the importance of allotments in
London. Vicky said: "Allotments are far more than places for growing cheap
vegetables, they are spces that inspire reveries, dreams and fantasies. The
plot is a refuge from turbulent times, a lung in the city, a haven of
Escape Routes will be on show at Bruce Castle until the end of September.'
