Publisher Note

With "allotment gardeners" Martin Parr created a new series which he realized in ?ve allotments in Düsseldorf and Krefeld. He met Mathis, just 15 years old, who runs the garden for his father, a multi-generational operation growing strictly organic fruit and vegetables, and he also spoke with young parents who share a garden, with Ingo the cactus breeder, with Michael the miniature train enthusiast, and with Petra the ?tomato woman?. "Allotment gardeners" is the loving view on one of the original German clichés: the allotment gardeners. With his own British-humorous look, Martin Parr created portraits of allotment gardeners that go beyond the persons and share similar qualities with August Sander?s images of people.
