Sempervirens (2001) is the botanical name for evergreen plants. Here the photographer is telling the story of homes beautified by artfully clipped evergreen planting, serving both as decorations and boundaries. Often an ambivalence can be noted of the wish to exhibit the property on one hand and to hide it from view on the other. The photos taken in different European countries indicate that this is not a regional phenomenon but rather a culturally general one.
