Harking back to each of its bygone eras, renowned photographer Derry Moore presents a unique view of India in all its magnificent, sumptuous, and sometimes faded glory. Derry Moore first began photographing India in the 1970s, where he encountered the unique atmosphere of a country that seemed suspended in time. In his photographs of the stately architecture and sprawling landscapes, Moore captures the continent’s unique visual identity from its Ancient and Medieval temples, through the Mughal period, up to the architecture of the European colonial era. In so doing, he captures the essence of India at a time before the homogenizing tide of globalization swept the country. Moore’s architectural photographs of richly decorated temples, imposing colonnades, intricate multifoil arches, and formal gardens reflect the interaction between British and Indian styles. Featuring black-and-white photographs of the grand palaces and lavish, marble ballrooms that embody India’s past, this book also explores Moore’s portraits of cultural icons, high society women, as well as some of the servants and staff who form a continued, yet fading, presence within the architectural spaces. Including many of Moore’s most popular images, plus more than 40 photographs that have never been published before, this comprehensive book will appeal to anyone who has a love of India, and the often breathtakingly beautiful, and timeless aesthetics of India’s past, which can only be seen in the shadow of its present.

For years, Britain's much-loved gardener Monty Don has been leading us down all kinds of garden paths to show us why green spaces are vital to our wellbeing and culture. Now, he travels across America with celebrated photographer Derry Moore to trace the fascinating histories of outdoor spaces which epitomize or redefine the American garden. In the book, which complements the BBC television series, they look at a variety of gardens and outdoor spaces at the center of American history including the slave garden at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello estate, Longwood Gardens in Delaware, and Middleton Place in South Carolina. Together, they visit verdant oases designed by modernist architects such as Richard Neutra. They delve into urban outdoor spaces, looking at New York City's Central Park, Lurie Garden at the southern end of Millennium Park in Chicago, and the Seattle Spheres.
