Noted garden artist Elizabeth Murray's Painterly Photography has established itself as one of Pomegranate's tried-and-true jewels. Professional photographers and painters, as well as anyone who simply enjoys artistic expression through various media, can reap the benefits of Murray's instruction in and examples of "painterly photography." The sixty-six images reproduced here all began as Polaroid photographs that Murray took in France, Maine, and California. But she transformed them into wonderful photographic paintings by manipulating the still-fluid emulsion of the pictures with toothpicks and other instruments in a process she calls "painterly photography." To encourage the reader to become acquainted with his or her own "artist within, " the book clearly explains what cameras, instruments, and materials to use to follow Murray's technique.
