The Japanese garden is held in great esteem throughout the world, but it succeeds by blending opposites -- an energy of line and material worked with great restrains; nature expressed in the driving force of a waterfall or in pebbles swept into patterns around a boulder.Japan's noted garden photographer, Haruzo Ohashi, demonstrates his knowledge of and sensitivity to this subject. This breathtaking companion volume to The Japanese Garden: Islands of Serenity and Japanese Courtyard Gardens leads us further into the magical world of this talented photographer. This time, Ohashi concentrates on gardens of the modern period. Some gardens are shown in seasonal variety, but all combine energy and serenity, the contrasts and harmonies of the design principles. Japanese Gardens of the Modern Era exhibits the best examples of Japanese landscaping from the Edo period (17th & 18th centuries) to the present. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
