Olof Nimar’s series of photographs Giverny's Generosity (2017) shows tulips in Claude Monet’s garden in Giverny, France. A garden which was planned and constructed exclusively according to Monet’s fancy in regards to color, light and form. The water for the dam was taken from a nearby village and thus was deprived from the villagers who needed it for washing and for their livestock. The artificial is blended with the authentic and biological in the garden as well as in Nimar’s images.
