About this work
"Charles Jones was an English gardener who, at around the turn of the 20th century, took hundreds of photographs of vegetables, fruits and flowers, all set against neutral, dark or light backgrounds in the style of formal studio 'portraits.' His images challenge the narrative of the history of the still-life genre and of photography in general. However, they languished unseen until 1981, when photography collector Sean Sexton stumbled upon Jones' surviving prints in Bermondsey Market in London."--Back cover.
