Images from EOS 1Ds Mark III at Chelsea Flower Show

A first in garden design awaits visitors to this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show (24 to 28 May) with the integration of stunning, large-format printed images to create a unique urban garden at the show. The images, the work of contemporary landscape photographer, David Anthony Hall, will be incorporated into the external landscape being created by Thompson’s Galleries.

Measuring up to 3 x 1.5 metres, the panoramic images have been produced on a Canon imagePROGRAF iPF9100 large format printer by Canon UK’s distributor, Surrey-based Velmex Distribution. The images are printed on 260gsm photo gloss paper and then face mounted on Perspex. Gallery owner Sue Thompson says that they "show how art can be an integral part of the structure of a garden".

A Canon user from image capture to printed output, David Hall shoots his images on a Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III and uses a panoramic technique to capture a multitude of shots that go into the final image.

Hall comments: “By integrating my images into the concept garden, I’m hoping to challenge convention and stimulate a debate around the placement of art outdoors. I also want to show how it can brighten up difficult outdoor spaces, including courtyard gardens, by adding depth, colour and a focal point to these areas".
