This re­spected pho­tog­ra­pher cap­tured the lovely im­ages of fash­ion de­signer Jenny Kee’s garden in Black­heath, NSW, on page 78.

Known for his work in Aus­tralia’s lead­ing in­te­ri­ors and life­style mag­a­zines, Ja­son says he’s be­come in­creas­ingly in­ter­ested in shoot­ing gar­dens. His pho­to­graphs il­lus­trate landscaper Michael Bates’s lat­est book The New Aus­tralian Garden (Mur­doch Books, $59.99), which in­cludes a chap­ter on Jenny Kee’s garden in the NSW Blue Moun­tains. “I loved Jenny’s garden — it sat com­fort­ably in the na­tive bush that sur­rounded it,” Ja­son says. Al­though his home city of Syd­ney has “beau­ti­ful trees and nat­u­ral pock­ets,” Ja­son likes to es­cape to an an­gophora for­est in the Bouddi Na­tional Park on the Cen­tral Coast of NSW. “I took my wife there on our sec­ond date.”
