Designer Maarten Kolk took the initiative for this publication during the completion of his graduation project at Design Academy Eindhoven. The concept for this publication arose from his fascination with vegetable gardens and the conviction that common everyday things are all too often taken for granted. People eat vegetables every day, but many of them are ignorant of the origin and growth of vegetable plants.
For his publication Bolted, Kolk simply let himself be guided by the daily goings-on in his vegetable garden. He observed what happened, and wrote down his findings, registering bolting vegetables with a designer's eye. Proceeding from this conceptual line of approach, he highlighted the unexpected hidden splendour of vegetables and the extraordinary colours and shapes of bolted vegetables. The result is an exceptional photo document containing intriguing images.
