Seeing gardens by Sam Abell( Book )
5 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and Chinese and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
At the heart of every garden lies an idea: the greatest gardens represent not just nature's beauty but the clear vision of a gifted artist. The same is true of an inspired garden book. To capture the essence of a garden demands both a keen eye and a subtle sensibility, the hallmark qualities of Sam Abell's acclaimed photography. This volume's landmark images have as much to tell us about how we see as what we see. As befits a book that melds two visual arts, Seeing Gardens lets its 150 pictures speak for themselves with a spare text that offers context rather than commentary. The photographs include planned gardens in a variety of cultural settings; found gardens, created by nature but given form by the artist's frame; and the many allusions to gardens in daily life.--From publisher description
