In the early 2000s, my wife, Laura, a prominent landscape designer in Los Angeles, suggested I accompany her on a tour of Italy’s Renaissance gardens. Initially I wasn’t thinking of how to photograph them, as in my own words, “I photograph everything except landscape and still-lifes.” That said, Laura had been accompanying me for years on trips to photo festivals and photography galleries, which to be fair, she enjoys, thus, I agreed and began to consider how I could find my own direction for these visits. Since that first trip, we’ve visited similar aged gardens in France, Spain and elsewhere.
