Brigitte Carnochan: Emily’s Garden

Brigitte Carnochan: Emily’s Garden

My first photographs were of flowers and I suspect my last will be as well. I have been drawn to gardens and to flowers, their exotic geometry and sensuous rigor, as long as I can remember. It is a rare day that there are no fresh flowers on my breakfast table. I share these feelings with Emily Dickinson, also a…
Fred Zinnemann: Talking Pictures
