Item #14864 THE SKY BOOK. Richard Misrach.


Santa Fe: Arena, 2000. First edition. Hardcover. Misrach has redefined contemporary landscape photography with his images of the splendor and destruction of the American West. Each of his "cantos" considers another chapter in the epic story of humankind and the land. Far from portraying the edenic, pristine landscapes of early practitioners such as Carleton Watkins, Eadweard Muybridge, or Ansel Adams. Misrach's compelling and often troubling images of the American West pose important questions about human impact on the natural world. Beneath the remarkable beauty of Misrach's color photographs are scenes of floods, fires, nuclear testing grounds, dead animals, and the debris of society. The photographs here comprise Misrach's most ambitious series, which transposes his narrative from the land to the sky. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Item #14864
