'Allowed' is a study of wild growth during the COVID-19 lockdown in Cardiff, the capital city of Wales. It comprises colour photographs taken in the centre and residential areas. 'Allowed'' presents the relationship of the urban environment to the plant ecology it replaces, and on which it was literally built. These photographs aim to capture the aesthetic quality and ecological necessity of pandemic-allowed nature. This photographic study is part of a wider inquiry in my artistic practice into the natural environment and the relationship of the individual within it.
