In this portfolio of seven selected images, Erica Lennard has included fine art photographs of gardens in Japan, England, Tunisia, France, and Italy. The black and white images are enlarged and printed with high contrast, creating moody and grainy atmospheres. Exaggerated black and white forms repeat in the images, flattening the perspectival plane.
