The Irish : a photohistory, 1840-1940 by Sean Sexton( Book )

Plant kingdoms : the photographs of Charles Jones by Charles Jones( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yet Charles Jones did not photograph his vegetables, fruits, and flowers within nature. On the contrary, he isolated his works against neutral backgrounds - beguiling studio "portraits" of beans and onions, squashes and turnips, tulips and sunflowers, plums and pears. His techniques - close-up viewpoint, long exposure, and spare composition - anticipate by decades the later achievements of modernist masters, for here was an "outsider" genius, who was saved from obscurity only by the photographic collector Sean Sexton's chance discovery of his surviving prints in a London market

The plant kingdoms of Charles Jones by Charles Jones( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles Jones was an English gardener who, at around the turn of the 20th century, took hundreds of photographs of vegetables, fruits and flowers, all set against neutral, dark or light backgrounds in the style of formal studio 'portraits.' His images challenge the narrative of the history of the still-life genre and of photography in general. However, they languished unseen until 1981, when photography collector Sean Sexton stumbled upon Jones' surviving prints in Bermondsey Market in London."--Back cover
