It's not all about flowers and plants at this year's Chelsea Flower Show as the work of a contemporary landscape photographer is on display in one of the concept gardens. David Anthony Hall's panoramas, which were printed on a Canon imagePROGRAF iPF9100 large format printer by Velmex Distribution, can be found in the Thompsons Plein Air Gallery Garden where designers want to show how art can be an integral part of the structure of a garden.

David said: "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.  The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF9100 has been the ideal device to print my images at the scale required to achieve the greatest impact.  The print quality is superb and every detail is reproduced with exceptional precision.  Canon’s colour reproduction is also spot on every time - the 12 colour LUCIA pigment ink system gives me a huge colour gamut and the extra red, green and blue inks increase the outer spectrum, giving me something as close to a lab process as I think inkjet can produce."

David shoots his images on a Canon EOS-1Ds Mk III and uses a panoramic technique to capture a multitude of shots that go into the one final image, which he later weaves together in his digital darkroom. At the end of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, David will donate all the proceeds from the sale of Bluebells Woods, a focal work in the garden, to the Children’s Acute Transport Service (CATS).
