To go along with the current (30 August 2014 to 1 February 2015) exhibition of his display, (of 80 species, demonstrating the relationship between species of the genus Fritillaria, shown life-sized in one continuous 10 metre long image), Laurence Hill will be giving two talks (8 October 2014, 2pm and 5 November 2014, 2pm) at the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art, Kew. Further details can be found at - http://kew.org/visit-kew-gardens/whats-on/… http://kew.org/visit-kew-gardens/whats-on/… http://kew.org/visit-kew-gardens/whats-on/… I have been very fortunate to see a copy of the brochure which goes along with the exhibit, which is itself a quality work. In the booklet it is stated " The image can be viewed on various levels; as a phenotypic study, a taxonomic document, a voucher specimen for genetic research or the journey of a photographer ". I would add to this by saying that it is also a thing of great beauty, and a unique work of art! I am so looking forward to seeing the full size image. I really would urge anyone who possibly can, to attend one of the talks, as the findings of this important research promise to be both interesting and enlightening.
