Russ McClintock is an American photographer living in the UK. As an alien in our strange land he notices more acutely the bizarre traditions that we Britain’s perceive to be normal. In the case of 24 Rose Varieties that applies to the ridiculous names that we give to our plants. ‘Sexy Rexy’, ‘Pensioners Voice’ and ‘Just Joey’ are all names that we’ve decided to bestow on our most romantic native plant, but quite why these names have been chosen is anyone’s guess. Regardless, Russ’ images serve as an amusing portrait of Britain’s traditional quirks. We’re an odd bunch aren’t we.
