In the Garden by Beth Dow

Have you seen this book?

The beautiful collection, created as a special feature for global post,  is best described by Beth Dow herself.

In Dow’s words: “These photographs were taken in formal English and Italian gardens. The shape and mystery of these places are a natural draw for me as they offer glimpses of the rich traditions of garden making. I am interested in garden history and historical concepts of paradise, and aim for pictures that have a meditative quality to reflect the spiritual urges that inspired the earliest gardens some six thousand years ago. My images are not depictive. I use the land before me as a jumping off point, implying light or shadow where perhaps there was none, as a way to create my own path through the garden. In fact, by positioning the lens, cropping my prints, and using burning and dodging to guide the viewer’s eye through a picture, I feel that I too am a gardener in a sense. I am after that “slant of curious light” that is the genius of a place.”

Makes me want, even more than I already do, to take more garden photography classes – and perhaps even some artful photo editing courses.

    I hadn’t seen this book, but last year some of her images were available as prints from 20×200.com, and I really wanted one. They would be really amazing artwork at a larger scale don’t you think?
