Gardens in TimeBook - 2006
Following the enormous international success of his The Most Beautiful Gardens in the World, Alain Le Toquin has continued to travel and document gardens all over the world. For Gardens in Time, he has visited 20 different countries and photographed nearly 130 gardens both contemporary and historical, from the Roman gardens at Hadrian's villa to the modern work of landscape gardeners like Fernando Caruncho, the Wirtzes, and Robert Irwin. Jacques Bosser's informative text reveals the evolutions, transformations, influences and trends that characterise each era, putting into context the aesthetic appeals of the gardens both then and now. Among garden history projects undertaken by a single photographer, Gardens in Time is totally unrivaled in scope.
