These recent 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

I like Beth Dow's work, because when looking through her book, you are not confronted with the presence of other people. The uniform style (including format of the images) keeps you in this fantasy world until you reach the back cover.
Aesthetically, Dow is great at composing frames that have a clear symmetry/vanishing points.
The idea that human try to tame seemingly wild nature and capture it's most organized form (in the most organized way) is what engaged me with her photographs.
These are pictures I took on a trip to Germany last year. I felt inspired by the nature as well as history that surrounds my hometown of Langenberg in North Rhine Westfalia. There is a great deal of NOSTALGIA involved in the reasons why I feel emotional about these pictures. Even though there are NO PEOPLE within the frame, the pictures speak to me mostly about the people I value most.

Le Désert de Retz is a place, where Beth Dow would have gone to. Maybe she wouldn't have taken pictures of the pyramide, but she would have certainly liked the tower. I think from what I can tell from the photos I have seen, Le Désert de Retz is a very striking example of human interference with nature.
