American photographer.

Erica Lennard is considered one of the most talented garden photographers. She studied at the San Francisco Art Institute before moving to Paris in 1973 with her sister Elizabeth. She began her career as a fashion photographer for the magazines Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Interview and Rolling Stone. In February 1976, she presented a series of portraits of women at the gallery Agathe Gaillard in Paris, giving way to the publication of her first book that same year with the publishing house Editions des femmes entitled Les Femmes, les Sœurs [Women, Sisters], with a postface by Marguerite Duras. She began photographing nature and classical European gardens and published her first book on the subject, Classic Gardens, Lustrum Press in 1982, and later Jardins d’artistes [Artist’s Gardens], in 1992 in New York.

Always in search of a renewed definition of beauty, she photographed the most majestic gardens in Europe, the zen gardens of Japan and the imperial gardens of China, as well as the greatest monuments. Her work has been exhibited in a number of countries and her 14 books have been translated into many languages.
