“Ici on sème”: a Photographic Depiction of Urban Gardening in a Banlieue

Camilo Leon-Quijano

Abstract


Based on a photo-ethnography of gardening practices, this visual essay explores how photographs might be used to critically depict the gardening experience of a community project in a French banlieue. By situating the representations of people, spaces, and interactions I reflexively portrayed the experiences of the urban gardeners through engaged photographic activities. Concerned with the plastic and iconic representation of the local community, this photo essay brings the viewer into the sensitive environment of urban gardening.
