Gardens and landscape of America's plantations and gilded age estates.
The locations range from the South East to the Hudson Valley and New England including Newport R.I. & The Berkshires.
The gardens in this series are printed in a blue monotone to release them from the constraints of seeing in the present tense, as full- color photography would do. Inhabiting a historic landscape of great beauty always contains an element of time travel, where one encounters exquisite views and interacts with Nature unanchored by time, unaffected by technology. Although the gardens exist today with the purpose of public inclusion rather than being the private domain of the privileged, there is still a continuity with the past and much to be experienced in appreciation of these landscapes.
