Description

Japanese gardens have long been admired for their capacity to improve on nature through impeccable design, detail and composition, properties that elevate them from mere gardens to sacred spaces. Infinite Spaces is a remarkable reflection of the Japanese garden, drawing on extracts from the Sakuteiki-an eleventh-century text that distills centuries of garden design-and pairing them with inspiring images from Sadao Hibi, one of Japan's best-known photographers.
