By Jamie M. Allen and Sarah Anne McNear.
From famous locations to the simplest home vegetable garden, from worlds imagined by artists to vintage family snapshots, The Photographer in the Garden traces the garden’s rich history in photography and delights readers with spectacular images. Picture commentaries by Sarah Anne McNear and an informative essay from curator Jamie M. Allen broaden our understanding of photography and how it has been used to record the glory of the garden. The book features photographers from all eras, including Anna Atkins, Karl Blossfeldt, Eugène Atget, Edward Steichen, Imogen Cunningham, Stephen Shore, Robert Mapplethorpe, Nobuyoshi Araki, and Collier Schorr. This sublime and beautiful book brings together some of the most stunning photography in the history of the medium.
