Photographic Commission, NEPN, University of Sunderland

NEPN invite proposals for a new photographic commission offered in association with the Royal Horticultural Society.

The commission is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

The selected proposal should explore horticultural science through a contemporary photographic lens.
In particular we wish to commission a photographic project which will respond to the RHS Science Strategy theme ‘Gardening in a Changing World.’

We particularly welcome proposals which take a narrative, documentary approach.

Areas for analysis could include:

–          How garden plants can capture pollution, reduce flood damage, and assist in the cooling of cities as our climate warms.
–          Exploring the impact of artificial light; night-time pollinators, stimulation of crops and food production.
–          Identifying and managing pests and diseases.
–          Increasing plant biodiversity.
–          Bio-security
–          Impact of technology on gardening and horticulture.
