“The Jardin des Serres d'Auteuil is a botanical garden set within a major greenhouse complex located at the southern edge of the Bois de Boulogne in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. It is my favorite garden in town, incredibly quiet and peaceful. It has this romantic vibe thanks to the greenhouses in which one can wander. The site is in danger nowadays, as part of the garden is threatened with demolition because of the extension of the nearby Rolland Garros venue. I have been here several times, always with the same goal - to enjoy this peculiar Eden for myself and mark its ambiance on film, forever.”
