About the Book
Walking into my Garden is a book about gardens, fantasies and dreams, and the connections we have between our gardens and our personalities, and particularly about how this is manifested in the English culture.
To be read alongside 'A Mercurial Fairytale - development' which gives more information about the background to the project and the research which underpinned it, this book chronicles the interviews with some of the gardeners approached as part of this project, alongside pictures of their gardens and one or two-word descriptions which illustrate their personal connections to their gardens.
Features & Details
Antonisia Schroder’s photography has been shaped over years of experience and experimentation, beginning in South America before relocating to Europe and developing her career. Now a dual British/Brazilian citizen having first settled in the UK in the 1990s, she was born in Fortaleza, Brazil, in 1976. However, her family is Portuguese in origin. Antonisia was always inquisitive about the world around her; a quality that served her well as she grew older and began to see that world through a lens rather than the naked eye. She is a prolific photographer, book maker and artist and has held a number of solo exhibitions in the UK and further afield. She has also been nominated several times for the Brazilian International Press Awards in the art category. She has a BA and MA degree in art and photography and regularly runs workshops and training sessions for schools, colleges and other educational institutions. She is also a keen poet - using her love of it to record her thoughts.
