Synopsis

The International Garden Photographer of the Year is a unique competition, open to professional and amateur photographers, that showcases stunning images within landscape, nature and wildlife, still life, and even portrait photography as it relates to plants and gardening. Entrants from around the world submit photographs in one of several categories—the Beauty of Plants; Beautiful Gardens; Trees, Woods, and Forests; Breathing Spaces; Greening the City; the Bountiful Earth; Wildlife Havens; Fragile Landscapes; and Young Garden Photographer of the Year—and winners for both single images and portfolios are selected in each.

This series compiles the winners and best entries of each year in a beautifully bound volume. The result is a comprehensive and timely collection of some of the best nature photography in the world. It captures such diverse subjects as Canadian aspen groves, Mexican wall gardens in Texas, Japanese gardens tucked away amidst urban cityscapes, and fireflies lighting the summer sky. All of the images are accompanied by descriptions from the photographers, which lend insight into their perspectives and techniques. A striking survey of the year’s best photographs of the natural world and of those who depend on and delight in it, this volume will be a welcome addition to the bookshelf of any gardener, nature lover, or photography enthusiast.
