Vegetable Bags from Leila’s Shop
When Contributing Photographer Patricia Niven subscribed to the weekly £10 bag of vegetables from Leila’s Shop in Calvert Ave, she had not counted upon the photographic inspiration that the contents would deliver. Leila McAlister goes to Covent Garden each Monday night to choose the best seasonal produce she can find and these bags comprise London’s freshest vegetables. Yet for the lucky recipients they provide not just nutritious fare but a changing calendar of the seasons of the year and a weekly reminder of the life of the fields.
