Abstract
Shot in 1980, Garden & Alley shows JoAnn Elam’s vegetable garden in her backyard in Chicago. As in other elements of this collection, the camera here pans over the plants and flowers springing from the earth and over the houses around and garage doors at the end. In that sense, Garden & Alley further reveals Elam’s interest in nature and farm labor already visible in the titles shot in Monterey, MA, and the other ones showing her backyard in Chicago.
