This abandoned summer house dates back to the early 1930s and has been left untouched and open to the elements. I have enjoyed wandering through this garden for five years during all seasons and I have used it as a backdrop for several pictures.

I wanted to tell a story of family, nature and passing time. The dress my daughter is wearing used to belong to my mother and I wanted the dress to complement the colours of autumn.
