Welcome to Avant Garden.
Fine art, garden photography & inspired goods by Minneapolis artist Terra Rathai
Avant Garden Studio is about seeing beauty in ordinary places, seeking art in unusual or mundane subjects and celebrating it all.
It's about awareness, expansive thinking, and stopping to smell the roses. I'm glad you're here.
AVANTGARDEN365: The Daily Photo Blog
Where it all began...
I became a photographer in 2010 when I decided to commit to a 365-project. I would take photos every day and choose one to share. I started the blog as a way to stay on task and share my work. I had no idea what I was doing but over tens of thousands of pictures, I started to find my vision.
