Beth Dow's photographs of formal English and Italian gardens capture quiet moments that belie a garden's ever-humming life. In the Garden is a meditation on classic concepts of paradise and garden design, in which the photographer becomes a gardener, guiding the viewer's eye and creating a mood. She tells us a bit about some of her favorite photographs from In the Garden.
Artist's note: "This knot garden is a wonder of geometric precision that complements the ornate decorative timber of the manor house. I shot this in early September when they were still trimming the topiaries, and I love the little signs of natural disorder."
