Does it make sense to say 'the longing of a path? asks Verlyn Klinkenborg in his opening meditation on Lynn Geesaman's Gardenscapes (Aperture), a book of painterly photographs of formal gardens and parks. A clump of trees appearing like a mirage on a hillside in Tayside, Scotland, or fallen camellia blossoms, like perfect tiny brushstrokes of red paint, on Avery Island in Louisiana, are as luminous as they are masterfully rendered.
