(With Rebecca Solnit). American photographer John Pfahl has an ongoing fascination with man's complex interaction with nature. This is a photographic survey of gardening at its boldest, most bizarre, and most exuberant. Among the plants featured are vast flowers, terrifying sculptural cacti, outlandish topiary, and extraordinary bonsai: these gardens were planned and planted by true eccentrics, with surreal creativity and great humor.
John Pfahl received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Syracuse University in the School of Art and his Master of Arts from Syracuse University in the School of Communications.
John Pfahl taught at the Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, New York, from 1968-1983. Later he was a professor at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque. Also, he taught at the University at Buffalo, the State University of New York.
John Pfahl has appeared in over 100 group and solo exhibitions, and his work is represented in at least forty-five public and corporate collections, including the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
