Ambitious in scope and a wonder to examine, "Gardens in Time" captures two millennia of garden history between its covers. The follow-up to world-renowned photographer Alain Le Toquin's successful "The Most Beautiful Gardens in the World, Gardens in Time" contains lush and glorious photographs of the nearly 130 gardens that Le Toquin explored across 20 countries -- the most comprehensive garden photo documentary ever undertaken by a single photographer. From the Roman gardens at Hadrian's villa to the modern work of landscape gardeners like Fernando Caruncho, the Wirtzes, and Robert Irwin, historical and contemporary gardens are showcased. All are complemented by Jacques Bosser's informative text, which reveals the evolutions, transformations, influences, and trends that characterize these beautiful landscapes, putting into context their aesthetic appeal, both then and now.
Alain Le Toquin has been a photographer specializing in both culture and nature for more than 20 years. Jacques Bosser is a writer and translator of more than 40 design and photography books. The authors’ last collaboration was The Most Beautiful Gardens in the World. Both men live in France.
