This 60 minute presentation begins with the premise that The Camera Always Lies. What we see in a picture, the aesthetic, often conveys unintentional messages. With the current interest in sustainability it is important to show pictures that reinforce the actual tenets of sustainability. Using examples from the award winning books: The American Meadow Garden, Hardy Succulents, and Plants and Landscapes for Summer-Dry Climates, the presentation uses authentic gardens to discuss the elements of sustainability and shows how we need to accept a new aesthetic in garden photography. Presented to San Francisco Flower and Garden Show, Seattle Garden Show, Sacramento Lawn and Garden Show.
