This is a book to savor. Study each photograph carefully, and enjoy its artistry. Each published photo, under the aegis of Kew, is grouped by topic and judged by professional photographers. The subject classifications are garden views, plant portraits, trees, wildlife, and people in the garden, including a special division for young photographers ages 12 to 15. The photographs come from all over the world, proving that cameras and their operators speak a common language. Each photograph includes a caption that explains how the image was obtained. In addition, professional specifics are noted.
