Last year in Paris I helped out with styling on a shoot for cute French kids shoe shop Six Pieds Trois Pouces. Check out some of the pics by Robinson Ferreux and a little film by Severin.

These images are from Forgotten Spaces: the Barbican Conservatory, a collaborative project between photographer Luke Hayes and writer Sarah Simpkin. The conservatory, built in 1980 in a post war estate, is beautifully wild against the bulbous architecture of Chamberlin, Powell and Bon.

Phytology is a great botanical project opening our minds to plants which are commonly labelled as weeds. Their website explains that the project “brings artists and botanists together to explore the medicinal properties of plants that are common to derelict urban environments… (and) aims to challenge ideas of use, value, resilience and the function of wildness within our urban ecosystem”.
The team (including Dr. Peter Giovannini, the International Projects Officer for Kew Royal Botanic Gardens) are busily preparing for the opening of a medicinal field in late April at the Bethnal Green site. Visitors will be able to explore the field, learn about the plants and harvest them for medicine and food. Here are a few of the plants that will be found on site.

St Johns Wart:
We started with champagne and nibbles before Jardine explained a little about each of the flowers from the the rainbow-esque display. We then got a demonstration on how to make a posy in her incredibly beautiful natural style.
It was great having so many different flowers to play with and I enjoyed giving a little bit of help to those around me. It was such a treat to make some new floral friends, namely Amy of Henry Hudson and John from Blooming Lovely, and the talented photographers Lisa and Pete from And a Day. I feel a little like the dorky new kid on the block, but am amazed by the warm welcome you have all given me.
At the end of the night I helped wrap all the bouquets and it was very interesting to see all the different interpretations presented to me. There were beautiful colour combinations and unusual designs. All of them had something special about them.
