Diane Cook and Len Jenshel, two of America’s leading photographers, have collaborated for years to combine documentary and fine art photography. The result? Stunningly beautiful images in unlikely places, from the fence along the US-Mexico border, to green spaces high up on NYC rooftops. For the March National Geographic, they explored the unexpectedly colorful world of gardens photographed during nighttime hours, juxtaposing creative lighting with carefully sculpted landscapes for unforgettable, arresting images.

In partnership with the National Geographic Museum
