In 'Seeing Gardens', Sam Abell celebrates three decades of capturing gardens - from the meticulously tended to the delightfully unexpected. Featuring vibrant photographs accompanied by a personal narrative that lends meaning and context to each, Abell's talent and passion for his subject merge to create this elegant and introspective work.

Divided into three sections, Abell conveys a variety of perspectives through the camera lens and explores notions of what constitutes a garden. In the first section, Abell presents photographs of cultivated gardens worldwide, including English historic gardens, Tolstoy's garden in Russia, the Zen gardens of Kyoto, and American ornamental and organic gardens.

While photographing these deliberately maintained grounds, Abell also ventured into the world's most beautiful untamed landscapes in search of "garden-like" beauty. The following section chronicles those discoveries in locales such as the Australian Outback, the Grand Canyon, Zion, and the Pacific Crest, showcasing Abell's appreciation for natural design and unblemished vistas. The third section commemorates the myriad ways people bring gardens into their lives.

Flower arrangements, fabric, art - the garden has inspired countless facets of creativity and decor evident around the world. 'Seeing Gardens' is Abell's dazzling tribute to this fact, portrayed with striking insight and a reverent eye.
