About the Author
Anna Potter is the florist behind the flower shop Swallows and Damsons, based in Sheffield and popular on Instagram (swallowsanddamsons). Her style of arranging has a luxe and wild feel that uses containers of all sorts and moves beyond the confines of blooms in her decoration--incorporating foliage, fruit and vegetables, sea shells, and most things that grow out of the ground.
India Hobson is a UK based editorial, lifestyle and still life photographer, and one half of Haarkon. Haarkon published their first book, Glasshouse Greenhouse, in 2018. India has enjoyed a creative partnership with Swallows & Damsons for a number of years, working with Anna Potter to develop their signature style.
