Giverny, A Year at the Garden

Giverny, A Year at the Garden

Terri WEIFENBACH

Publisher: Éditions Xavier Barral

The Musée des Impressionnismes in Giverny, the town in which Claude Monet decided to spend much of his life, gave American photographer Terri Weifenbach the freedom to capture its garden for an entire year.
Weifenbach, whose work draws inspiration from the impressionists, draws out an almost unexpected beauty from the many flowers and plants of the garden. Playing with the seasons, the forms and the colors, she reveals a hidden world somewhere between reality and fantasy. Her highly saturated photographs introduce the reader to the point of view of the plants themselves, allow us to sympathize with their perspective, and blend the flowers’ individual beauty with their (human-designated) role as a part of the garden.

“A sensitive artist, Terri takes her time. She speaks slowly with perfect diction, in complete harmony with her works. She is an artist of the long term, of silence, and of moments that stretch out. She told us she wanted to extend her stay, as the garden holds so many secrets. And it is true that these spaces, hidden by the high hedges, allow many plants and much wildlife to prosper.”
― from the introduction by Cyrille Sciama, general director and chief curator of the garden
