A curation of photographs of pink things found around Deptford, which have been named after flowers using the Plant Snap app to 'identify them'. 

The Deptford pink is a rare flower native to Europe, and is thought to have originally been named by the 15th Century botanist Thomas Johnson, describing a pink flower he had seen in Deptford, South East London.  However, this has been questioned since, and it is thought he was probably describing its cousin, Maiden Pink, and that the Deptford pink had not grown in the area since the city of London was built.

So, the Deptford pink was never seen in Deptford. As our studio is based in Deptford, South East London, Anna thought she would take a wander round and photograph pink things or ‘flowers’ that you can see in Deptford.
