In the Garden 

July 8 – September 30, 2018

Drawn from the vast George Eastman House collection, the photographs in this exhibition explore uses of gardens and how humans cultivate the landscapes that surround them. From famous locations such as Versailles to the simplest home vegetable garden, from worlds imagined by artists to food production recorded by journalists, the subjects in this exhibition broaden our understanding of photography and how it has been used to record gardens.
