Description This is the lawn terrace of Sedgewick Garden in MA. A mansion, dating to the 19th century, sits in the center of this large garden which encompasses many acres of the property. The garden represents the traditional design of period, with a focus on defining garden rooms that often reveal a long vista to the surrounding rural landscape or a path to an adjoining room. These rooms are distinct spaces shaped by plantings, walls and fences. There is a certain geometric quality of the garden that interplays with varied and informal plant massing.
Brian Rojo, Arlington, MA. Member Since March 2011 Artist Statement I'm a landscape architect with a curious eye for finding beauty and meaning in unexpected places. My portfolio contains many subjects, with an emphasis on landscape and architectural photography. I worked as a landscape architect for many years until I became disabled with a genetic disorder. As a result, I'm using photography as a means of expression, replacing the artistic sensibilities that I once found in my profession of designing landscapes and gardens. My aim is to seek out strong compositions and unique viewpoints of familiar and unfamiliar subjects. My interests range from rural to urban landscape, from modern to historic architecture, from plants to vernacular objects, from a sense of place to a sense of wonder. Ultimately, I hope to encourage others to find the beauty in their environment, and to be curious of the unfamiliar.
