An evening with Lalage Snow, author of War Gardens

Photojournalist and war reporter, Lalage Snow, will be sharing the award-winning photography from her latest book, War Gardens, at Castle Gardens in Sherborne on Thursday 6 December from 7:30pm. In association with Winstone’s Books, this special evening will take the audience on a journey through this century’s conflicts in places such as Afghanistan, Ukraine and the West Bank and the gardens found within these war-torn countries, examining war through the personal stories of those living through it.

A culmination of seven years’ work while living in Kabul and travelling around Asia and the Middle East, these images, which have been exhibited at The Garden Museum in London and Sydney Opera House, show the gardens that people have created in the pursuit of calm, when living alongside conflict and life’s continuing pressures.
