Garden's variety


October 30, 1997|By John Dorsey

Las Posas is a Mexican sculpture garden created between 1954 and 1984 by eccentric British collector, poet and architect Edward James. The garden is an 80-acre site filled with surrealistic concrete sculptures of architectural elements including stairs, bridges, archways and columns. Photographer Joan Rosenstein has used the garden as a setting for her photographs of the female form. The exhibit, "The Surreal World of Las Posas," at Montgomery College combines Rosenstein's black and white photographs of women in the garden with her color photographs of the garden. The color photos offer a "real" view of the garden, while the black and white ones of women posed with the sculptures emphasize the surreal and illusionistic.
