About my work: In the Garden was inspired by my passion for garden photography and the challenge of trying to make a lush and elegant book to celebrate the beauty of the American garden and the stories of the people who create and nurture them.
Kudos: Cynthia Conigliaro, the owner of Archivia Books in New York, said, “It’s really beautiful—kudos! The images are quite magical and lovely, and it’s a great visual reference for garden designers, dreamers, historians, photographers.”
Favorite photographer: I’ve been inspired by Irving Penn, Ralph Gibson and Ernst Haas—for different reasons but primarily because of their masterful ability to frame an image and their poetic use of color. And Jay Maisel. And William Waldron. And Simon Upton. And Johnny Miller…. Shall I go on?
