    About The Work

    Alfred Seiland’s 2004 photograph Dress by Nicholas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga, exuberant and bursting with color and pattern, belongs to the artist’s Hanging Garden series, which he produced for the New York Times. Here, a fashionable, polychromatic floral dress is hung on a clothesline before a field of red, yellow, and orange flowers, with which it blends and merges. Of the commission, Times director of photography Kathy Ryan explained, “My first instinct often is to bring in photographers who might not normally be shooting a particular kind of work. There were a lot of beautiful flowered prints that season, which led me to think of Alfred Seiland, an Austrian landscape photographer. I remembered seeing a picture by him of sheets hanging on clotheslines, years before, and that was a direct inspiration.”
