Tokyo might be known for its towering buildings, bright lights and vending machines on every corner, but it's not hard to find a patch of greenery in the massive city. Parks, temples with gardens, windows overflowing with potted plants — they're everywhere.
That's what Brisbane-based photographer, print maker and plant collector Jessie Webb found when she spent three years in the Japanese capital, and like everyone who embarks upon an overseas adventure, she has the snaps to prove it. Unlike most travellers, however, she has an exhibition as well. From Tokyo's streets comes the one-night-only Brissie showcase that is Street Garden.
Taking over Analogue Gallery from 6.30pm on December 7, Webb's images explore how nature is used in both public and private spaces, the role that greenery plays, and how both living and non-living things form part of our urban ecology. Shot on 35mm, they'll also make you want to jump on a plane and do your own wandering. Don't say we didn't warn you.
