Under House Arrest.

Under House Arrest. Photographs by Sebastien Girard. Sebastien Girard, 2011. 48 pp., illustrated throughout, 29,9x23,1cm.

Book description:

"After 'Nothing but home' (the house as a starting point) and 'desperate cars' (the destiny of cars in the photographer's neighborhood), Sébastien Girard dedicates his third volume 'Under house arrest' to the plight of plants.

Entrapped behind gates and bars, these mute prisoners in our houses and gardens continue to follow nature’s call. Their wildness, which we try to tame, is revealed here in its full force.

Entangled and injured by metal, they fight back and they display their irresistible desire to roam free."

I've previously featured Nothing But Home by Sébastien Girard.
