Crocus Valley is a love letter to Croydon, a collection of local artist and writer Ameena Rojee’s photographs from 2017 – 2022 that show a different side to the borough – wild, green, and romantic. Published by RRB Photobooks, the photobook features poetry by Croydon’s poet laureate Shaniqua Benjamin and cover art by local painter Bev Jones.
Launching as part of This is Croydon, Crocus Valley is accompanied by a free-to-all and accessible outdoor exhibition in Park Hill Park (near the walled garden) until 10th September.
You can also join Ameena on guided photo walks based in some of Croydon’s thriving green spaces.
