    Effetto Serra by Gina Soden

    View All Artist's Work


    Effetto Serra is part of acclaimed photographer Gina Soden’s latest series – Reclamation (2023).

    ‘Reclamation’ focuses on nature’s triumph as plants, trees, moss and mould regain spaces. The absence of human life is profoundly felt in industrial, institutional and often solitary environments. At the heart of this series is a duality between architectural prowess and the fallacy that humankind has any permanent control over nature.

    Soden laments capitalism’s insensitivity to its effect on abandoned people and places. We are offered a meditation on time, nature, industry and reclamation.

    Featuring a gorgeously evocative abandoned greenhouse in Italy’s Tuscan region, near the town of Pistoia.

    “I really loved this epic abandoned greenhouse, it was from a solo visit on my Villa Lena residency in Tuscany in 2021. I was curious, so took a drive up there and traipsed through the woods to find it just as the sun was setting. I particularly loved the decorative flower with coloured glass above the door.” – Gina Soden
