Gardens harness, enhance and revere the power of the earth; to enjoy one is to experience the most harmonious collaboration between man and nature. Each space is unique and a product of their individual climate and environment. A garden also reflects the history, culture, and architecture of the society that cultivated it. Gardens is a comprehensive visual exploration of these dynamic and engaging spaces. Along with the most celebrated gardens in the world, Gardens explores large-scale urban interjections and elaborate conservation projects giving fresh definition to Francis Bacon's idea that 'gardening is the purest of human pleasures'.
The Reflections series by Roads is a visual exploration of the spaces and building that mirror the cultures in which they play such a crucial part.
