Leonard Koren

Gardens of Gravel and Sand


A black and white photo essay detailing the subtle Japanese practice of raking, moving, and shaping gravel and sand into kare-san-sui, or dry landscape gardens. Not quite Zen, possibly art, and definitively without rocks, Koren explains the beauty in this poetic dance where things are constantly changing and yet seemingly remaining the same.

Soft cover with black and white photographs throughout.
