The interplay between formal composition and the mutability of light haunts and colors the land Lynn Geesaman details in The Poetics of Place, her first book. She photographs landscapes that mankind has shaped over the centuries according to cherished ideas of what nature should be-natural places that have been reordered by industry. An eloquent Introduction by esteemed writer Jamaica Kincaid examines the history of the formal garden and offers a new perspective on the relationship of man to his environs.
