David Cobb, professional nature, travel and garden photographer, author of multiple Japanese garden books
Art within art: Japanese gardens are an exquisite form of art that have been developed through the centuries, and lend themselves well to another form of art- photography! Join photographer David Cobb for an hour presentation as he discusses the art and design of Japanese gardens throughout North America through a virtual tour of his beautiful images. He'll also share the elements of style and finer points of photographing Japanese gardens. You'll learn how to really see the Japanese garden- from a unified whole down to the smallest details- and how to best capture their unique beauty through the seasons. OPTIONAL: After the talk and time for questions, join David, garden guides, and other Japanese garden aficionados at 7p.m. to explore and photograph the Arboretum's own Japanese Garden with new eyes.
