        ANORAK'S GUIDE TO PROSPECT COTTAGE (AUGUST 2012):

        Is it really nearly 20 years since Derek Jarman died? Gosh, time flies. He was one of Britain's most innovative directors from the 1970s - 1990s - his legacy seems to get better with age. Of course I'm talking about his two best known films Jubilee (1978) and Caravaggio (1986) (for more on the artist click here). Prospect Cottage, in the shadow of Dungeness Power Station, with the shingle garden he created and nurtured in the last years of his life, is probaly his most public legacy.

        I first came to Dungeness in the mid-1990s and was struck by its otherwordliness, its ethereal nothingness. It is desolate, it is a lonely place, as close to the dark side of the moon as you can get on Earth, I guess. But its desolation is what appeals, anything that can flourish as Derek Jarman's garden does can only be inspiring.

        I photographed the front garden, the back and his view across to the English Channel. Raised wooden text on the side of the cottage is the first stanza and the last five lines of the last stanza of John Donne's poem, The Sun Rising, and I also photographed that.
