Linda Rutenberg's images capture an astonishing world hidden from plain sight. By photographing public and botanical gardens at night, Rutenberg reveals a luminous landscape of plants, colours, shadows and light. Ten gardens throughout England are included, each with intimate portraits of their flowers and plants glowing in the blackness, revealing a secret nighttime world of subtle yet vibrant beauty, and illuminating the mystique of gardens. A perfect rose blooms at midnight. Leaves and flowers seem to glow in the darkness of the nocturnal world, and the peace of night affords these portraits an intimate quality. The English Garden at Night will enchant art-lovers and garden-lovers alike.
