Landscape architecture and photography are closely interrelated, since the former is a living, constantly evolving thing that can be captured in stills, even eternalized, by photography. What role does photography play in landscape design? How does photography create a new context for landscape? The book investigates such questions in nine essays by North-American and French scientists, using landscape designs that were created in Europe and the USA from the 1950s to today. The analysis is supplemented by conversations with the respective landscape architects and photographers, as well as by five portfolios of different landscape architecture photographers.
