photo-eye Bookstore is pleased to host a book signing and talk for Don Kirby and Joan Gentry’s The Anasazi Project on Friday, May 18, 2012 from 5 to 7 pm at photo-eye Bookstore, 370 Garcia Street, Santa Fe, NM. Photographers Don Kirby and Joan Gentry will give a short talk at 6:00 pm and will be available to sign books.
The Anasazi Project, published by Nazaraeli Press, is a joint exploration by photographers Kirby and Gentry of the remnants of the Anasazi peoples, who lived from 200BC to 1300AD before disappearing for unclear reasons. Kirby and Gentry have been exploring the Anasazi ruins together for over 20 years. The book contains an introduction and poems by Ann Weiler Walka and 60 duotone images illustrating the remains of the long past civilization's dwellings and rock art in the vast and beautiful Southwestern region.
|from The Anasazi Project|
“Sitting with Joan and Don’s photographs spread on my old library table, I marvel at the way they capture this perception. Much as an x-ray goes beyond the skin to capture bone structure, their visual language reveals a world beneath the surface world, a ground truth of energy gathered temporarily into form. In shades of silver and ebony, lightening flashes on cresting sandstone, flames leap, the deluge descends. The play of light and shadow, the tracings of water and wind offer metaphors for spirit, metamorphosis, migration.” — From the Introduction of The Anasazi Project by Ann Weiler Walka
