The English rose is an iconic symbol of the British isles that evokes royalty, war and beautiful women - a potent combination. For this project i wanted to celebrate the beauty of the roses from which these connotations are born. 


To capture these wonderful blooms I worked with David Austin Roses, the most renowned grower of English roses. 


Over the course of two summers I set up a small studio at the headquarters of David Austin in Wolverhampton, using a bright blue background as a stark contrast to the array of colours you find in roses.


I was assisted by senior rosarian Michael Marriott who selected the best examples of each variety of rose for me to photograph.  I captured 65 of the 111 varieties which I hope will show the the diversity and beauty of this symbolic flower.
