Fading beauty wall print

On a car-park embankment near David’s home in Wiltshire, a mass of poppies appeared one day. ‘I wanted an image of simplicity – mostly of spent seedheads, with just a few poppies still in full bloom,’ David explains. From a prone position, he shot them against an overcast sky to create an architecture of stems ‘with little flashes of brilliance’. Three days later, someone ‘weed-killered the lot,’ he says. ‘Most hadn’t set seed. So there’ll be no poppy meadow there next year.’
