‘It was believed that magic herbs could allow you tell the future’ Manchán Magan The project is a reflection on the human necessity for gardening. An observation of plants and flowers as metaphors for a bond with the natural, which at the same time contradicts their autonomous existence devoid of serving the human. It is a search for multiple possibilities where the two realities coexist. Each image a magical place, fictional, but because of this, truer than a real landscape; in the words of Neil Gaiman: “real life is not convincing”. The use of double exposures in each photograph invites a sense of a liminal space, transient and everchanging. The unpredictability of the final image as an analogy for that search for multiple possibilities.
