Synopsis: The work of the English landscape architect Russell Page is documented by photographer Marina Schinz. Included are examples of Page's best work, both early and late, some never published before. Water and trees, scale and proportion are captured in photographs and text that retrace a legacy reaching across America and Europe. The search for Russell Page's gardens involved deciphering discrete references to clients in his notes and indentifying unmarked photographs from his private files and unpublished writings.

Marina Schinz was born in Switzerland and now lives in Italy. She is one of the world's leading garden photographers, and her work includes the best selling book Visions of Paradise.
