A selection of portraits of Charlotte Mendelson from a piece for Guardian Weekend. It’s a cruel thing to ask to photograph a gardener in their garden in February, but the warm light and early blossom made up for the lack of colour elsewhere. One of my favourite shoots of the year for both the images that were created and the company that was kept.
