The Photographer in the Garden, published by Aperture and the George Eastman Museum, considers how photographers have chosen to interpret the garden, exploring the symbolism of individual flowers, and how gardeners have shaped the landscape from famous locations, such as Versailles and Giverny, to the simplest home vegetable gardens. Coauthored by Jamie M. Allen and Sarah Anne McNear, the book unites the work of some of the most important practitioners in the history of the medium, including, among others, Eugène Atget, Edward Steichen, Imogen Cunningham, Robert Mapplethorpe, Nobuyoshi Araki, and Collier Schorr.
