John Clarke is a self-taught photographer who has snapped allotments in the region for an exhibition at the Durham Light Infantry Museum and Durham Art Gallery which opens on Saturday.
Dr Clarke, of Durham City, became an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society in 1997 and has been supported in the project by Newcastle's Side Gallery.
He said: "Working with the people of the local allotments has introduced me to the camaraderie and friendly competition that typifies them. There's still enthusiasm, even among the young, and for every rather derelict plot there are several immaculate and productive gardens, each reflecting the personality of the creator."
His exhibition continues until September 28.
