Publisher's Description

After the great success of The invisibile city where monumental buildings isolated from the urban context came out of the shadows to create a sort of magic inventory of constructed space and an itinerary that can transcend continents, Irene Kung is back with another poetic and amazing book dedicated to the beauty of nature.

Irene Kung invites us to join her in a secret garden populated by 40 different marvelous and enchanted trees. Fascinated by their shape and their symbolic meaning, Irene Kung focuses her objective on Mother Nature’s creations and takes photos of old-growth and young plants, proving her great skill. Her magical photographs make nature seem almost supernatural. In silence, without a gust of wind, the forest dreamed of by Irene Kung is almost magically composed, image after image, page after page. It is a timeless forest, with many seasons, and different lights. A forest which knows no difference in species, which can afford to host pines and olive trees, palms and willows, fruit trees and evergreens. A garden of wonders - like one of the titles that the photographer herself came up with - or a forest of the soul, or even a fantastic catalogue dedicated to the beauty of the gifts that nature has to offer. Her lens is capable of transforming nature in a magical entity.
