Le Nôtre's Gardens.
Photographs by Michael Kenna
RAM Publications, Santa Monica, 1997.
40 quadratone illustrations, 10¼x10¾".
This collection, beautifully printed with warm quadratone illustrations, is the perfect compliment to Kenna's earlier industrial studies The Rouge and The Elkhorn Slough. Le Nôtre's Gardens honors the spirit and wisdom of French design, with the finest photographic craftsmanship magnifying the heroism of the scuplture and the exquisite rationality of the landscaping. It contains many never before published images.
