Every detail of production was supervised by the photographer. Produced to the exacting standards that are a hallmark of Lodima Press, this monograph reproduces Chamlee's contact prints with astounding fidelity to the delicacy and luminosity of the original photographs. In pictorial DJ with white titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Paula Chamlee's "Natural Connections". The photographer's series of landscape photographs in the classic, large-scale tradition of Edward Weston and Ansel Adams, one of very few contemporary female (or male) photographers to attempt such an ambitious project. "She extends the tradition in photographs that are both sensuous and lyrical yet subtle and complex. Chamlee's beautiful and arresting photographs transcend their recognizable subject matter while remaining deeply rooted in her profound connection to the natural world" (Publisher's blurb). Paula Chamlee began her career as a painter before turning exclusively to photography. It is no wonder then that these landscapes are truly monumental, showing "the intensity of her vision, which reverberates like solemn and glorious music" (Estelle Jussim). An absolute "must-have" title for Paula Chamlee collectors. This copy is Number 148, indicated/numbered as such on the Front Limitation Page, and it is very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in black pen by Paula Chamlee. This title is a late-modern photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Limited Slipcased Edition available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 44 plates. One of the finest American photographers of our time. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PAULA CHAMLEE AND MICHAEL A.

Synopsis: Few women have attempted to photograph the American landscape in the classic, large-format tradition pioneered by Edward Weston and Ansel Adams, and none so successfully as Paula Chamlee. She extends that tradition in photographs that are both sensuous and lyrical, yet subtle and complex. Chamlee's beautiful and arresting prints transcend their recognizable subject matter while remaining deeply rooted in her profound connection to the natural world.
Chamlee's journal entries--accounts of her experiences and insights while traveling and photographing--are carefully interwoven throughout the book, adding another dimension to our understanding of the artist and her work. The introductory essay by art historian and critic Estelle Jussim offers further insights and explores the development and creative life of the woman behind these extraordinary photographs.
