Columbus photographer Ardine Nelson became fascinated by the history of the private community gardens of Dresden, Germany, and set off to visit and document them and their owners — not just working-class folks who need a bit of land to grow their food and flowers, but also a wide variety of professionals who find it important to stay connected to the land. In some cases, people even build small cottages on their garden plots, turning them into mini-vacation homes. The results of her work — brilliantly colorful, large-formatted photographs — are on display through Aug. 30 in Green Spaces at downtown's Weston Art Gallery in the Aronoff Center for the Arts.
