What is a garden? Is gardening a visual art? And can a place, in all its dynamism, be captured forever in a still image? Just as gardens are a "tame" form of nature, so is photography, it must be admitted, a cultivated form of reality. It's this prodding of beautiful artifice that makes The Photographer in the Garden one of the most arresting explorations in the visual arts to be published this year, as thought-provoking as it is lush and suited to a pleasant armchair amble.
