What is a garden ?
A garden is a setting for an experience that takes place on multiple levels – simultaneously sensual, aesthetic and spiritual. In fact, this experience is the intended result of a well-designed garden. Can this be faithfully represented in an image ? This is the goal of learning to see as a garden photographer. But you don’t have to be a photographer. Anyone can learn to see … and be transformed in the process of doing so. And the gardens of Kyoto are the perfect setting for this to happen.
