Whilst photographing the architectural forms at several former plantations for the Slave Dwellings project, I collected plant specimens - the new inhabitants of these places - and photographed them in the lighting studio. This served as a way to dislocate the specimens from their original spaces.  Many of these plants have grown on these former plantations during slavery.
