“Derek Jarman’s Garden”

As some of you will know I’m a big fan of Derek Jarman’s films, paintings and writings. He made a huge impact on me when I was at art school. Sixteen years ago today Derek died of an Aids-related illness and I have spent the day at Dungeness on the Kent coast and documented his famous garden for the first time.

DUNGENESS, UNITED KINGDOM – 19.02.10. A general view of Derek Jarman’s garden at Prospect Cottage at Dungeness on the Kent coast on Friday 19 February 2010. Today was the 16th anniversary of Derek Jarman’s death of an Aids-related illness at the aged 52. The filmmaker, artist and writer lived at the famous cottage and created the shingled garden in the latter years of his life in the shadow of the Dungeness nuclear power station.
