Lake Las Vegas / Black Mountain
By Michael Light
$65 Signed — Purchase Book

In his Book of the Week pick, Rupert Jenkins writes: "Lake Las Vegas/Black Mountain is the third in a series of Radius books by Michael Light, collectively titled Some Dry Place: An Inhabited West. This latest chapter, the first in color, benefits from a large format 'Janus-faced' design that functions as a hardcover slipcase for two soft-bound books, one for each location. Each photograph is presented as a double page spread, which looks impressive and is conceptually shrewd; as Lucy Lippard observes, given their size — slightly larger than an airplane window — viewing Light’s aerial landscapes is like flying in a plane with him."





Taxonomy of a Landscape
By Victoria Sambunaris
$65 Signed — Purchase Book

"Victoria Sambunaris has been photographing the far reaches of America for over twelve years, venturing out on solo journeys to the Alaskan frontier, Hawaiian volcanic landscapes and the United States/Mexico border among many other locations. Her desire to document the grand idea of the American Dream and how it manifests itself in the culture and landscape are based in her personal and professional experience and her exploration of many fields of study including geology, cartography, economics, and art. In her documentary process she uses journals, Polaroids and large format photographs to convey her ideas and create a personal record of her numerous explorations of the country."— Melanie McWhorter from the introduction to her interview with Sambunaris



The Evolution of Ivanpah Solar
By Jamey Stillings
$85 Signed — Purchase Book

In 2010, Jamey Stillings began a three-and-a-half-year aerial survey of the complete construction of the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System, the world’s largest concentrated solar power plant producing 392 megawatts of electricity on 14 square kilometers of public land. Stillings’ photographs explore the transformative interactions between raw natural forms and the project’s precise geometric lines, visually stunning with hundreds of thousands of mirrors reflecting across the stark beauty of the Mojave Desert. Published by Steidl, The Evolution of Ivanpah Solar reproduces 60 of Stillings’ images with contributions from Bruce Barcott, Robert Redford and Anne Tucker.


Into the Flatland
By Kathleen Robbins
$39.95 Signed — Purchase Book

Winner of the 2011 Photo-NOLA, Into the Flatland explores the landscape, culture and inhabitants of the Mississippi river delta, the childhood home of photographer Kathleen Robbins.

"Kathleen Robbins draws her artistic energy from a deeply placed history within the Delta, from knowing familial stories and domestic vegetations, and from her people's long presence in Leflore County. When Kathleen Robbins ventures into the flatland, it's an act of return and remembrance."—from the forward by Tom Rankin
