As part of the ‘Year to celebrate Le Nôtre’, marking the 400th anniversary of André Le Nôtre’s birth’ I was invited to shoot a short film during a two-days conference “The heritage of Andre Le Notre” at the Parc of Sceaux, near Paris. Marco Martella (the founder of the Revue Jardins), who was organizing the event with the Hauts de Seine region gave me ‘carte blanche’. I didn’t want to do a descriptive or historical piece but wished to search for a quite contemplative vision of the garden and recorded impressions of some of the historians and architects who were taking part in the conference.
