St Ives photographer Marcia Carpenter has work displayed to mark the re-opening of Kew Palace in London.

As part of the celebrations, a community project was set up by The Historic Royal Palaces and The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

The project, which will be on view all this year, was to produce a structure reminiscent of the temples and buildings that have been part of the history of the gardens over the centuries. The picture of the Temple of Imagination in Kew Gardens by Ms Carpenter was used as part of the project.

She was one of a group of photographers from the Disabled Photographers Society asked to take part after work they did with Hampton Court Palace in 2005.

Each photographer had to provide up to 10 images taken at Kew Gardens. They were given access to the gardens at any time over four weeks but the work had to be black and white and either of architecture within the gardens or architectural type plants.
