Through the Lens: Capturing the Art of the Japanese Garden
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 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. After the talk and time for questions, join David, garden guides, and other Japanese garden aficionados to explore and photograph the Arboretum’s own Japanese Garden with new eyes.
Location: Mosier, Oregon
As a long-distance hiker, I have sharpened my photographic perspective over the years on the Pacific Crest Trail, the Continental Divide, the Canadian Divide and most recently walking across Iceland. My goal is to capture the wonders I see in nature for the enjoyment of all those with an eye for the extraordinary.
