Seeing Gardens

100.00

This book is the first written and photographed entirely by Sam Abell.  It is a stealthy photography book.  Nominally this appears to be a book of garden photographs, but Abell uses gardens and the 'seeing' of them to subtly discuss the fundamentals of photography, from framing and lighting, to scale, and to the persistent importance of moments even in apparently still situations.  The last chapter of the book, which reiterates the title, contains Abell's thoughts and images on the 'seeing' of gardens even when one is apparently not evident: "Often we are far from the garden of our dreams, but nearby may be a reminder of it, waiting to be seen."  

Fine softbound copies, signed and inscribed.  208 pages, color. 

Please consider ordering a copy through Amazon.
