About this event

Roses from my Garden: exhibition tour with Nick Knight

Monday 28 June

Join photographer Nick Knight for an online tour of his exhibition at Waddesdon, as he discusses his work with Pippa Shirley, Director of Collections at the Rothschild House & Gardens in Buckinghamshire, UK.

Nick Knight’s constant desire to experiment, push boundaries and challenge his audience has led him to take up a new subject, the classic rose – but expressed in an entirely new way.

His ‘Roses from my Garden’ series is inspired by the work of 16th and 17th century still life painters like Jan Brueghel the Elder and Jan van Huysum, but these large-scale, painterly photographs could not be more contemporary, dramatising the timelessness of nature.

Nick Knight cuts selected roses straight from his garden and arranges them specifically, using only daylight to illuminate his subject. Photographed on an iPhone, the digital images are enlarged and filtered through software that uses AI to infill the space between pixels. What appears at first glance to be a historical approach to flower photography is actually at the very cutting edge of imaging technology.

Nick Knight: Roses from my Garden exhibition, runs from 19 May to 31 October at Waddesdon find out more here >

A zoom link will be emailed to you 24 hours before the event.

Organiser Waddesdon - A Rothschild House & Gardens

Organiser of Roses from my Garden exhibition tour with Nick Knight

This splendid mansion, built by Ferdinand de Rothschild in the French Renaissance style, boasts an extensive art collection and immaculate furnishings. The collection, acquired by successive members of the Rothschild dynasty, includes Dutch Old Master paintings, portraits by Reynolds, Gainsborough and Romney, and outstanding furniture - some commissioned for the French Palace of Versaille. The house, gardens and aviary were created over a century ago to entertain Baron Ferdinand's circle of royal, political and artistic friends who came to Waddesdon for weekend house parties.
