Hollin Lane 

From 2016-2020 documentary photographer Rachael Munro-Fawcett was photographer in residence at Hollin Lane Allotments in Leeds West Yorkshire, exploring the relationships that exist between plot residents and the land. The topic of gardening and connecting to nature has become increasingly important and established over recent years and it is becoming widely reported that accessing green space in urban areas helps to improve mental and physical wellbeing and reduce levels of social isolation. 

The project sets out to highlight the benefits and importance of growing communities and provides viewers with an insight into the historical significance and relevance of allotments in today’s world. The project was shown at Bristol Photo Festival 2021 and results in Rachael's first published photo-book. Shop here
