Synopsis: Organized around a series of historical and contemporary works, this catalogue examines the ways photography and films have represented the desert since the 19th century. Among the artists included are Herge, Friedlander, Thesiger, Viola and Pasolini.

From Library Journal: This catalog was published in conjunction with the exhibition of the same name, presented last year at the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain in Paris. Depardon, a filmmaker, photographer, and reporter, collaborated with Mounira Khemir (photography historian), Sir Wilfred Thesiger (explorer and naturalist), and Paul Virilio ("urbanist" and essayist) to create this exhibit catalog, which celebrates the mystery and solitude of the desert as interpreted by 19th- and 20th-century photographers. Some of the images were commissioned for the book. Subjects include the Lunar Highlands, the Sonora Desert in Arizona, the Saharan Desert in Timbuktu and Mali, and deserts in California, Utah, Libya, the Sinai Peninsula, Niger, Chad, Algeria, Tunisia, Namibia, and Red Centre, Australia. The contemporary approaches include multimedia, collage, film stills, overpainted images, and classical black-and-white views of the f64 school. We see beautiful drifts of sand and cacti but also abandoned autos and other refuse, telephone poles marching across unending space, and ugly commercial signs. The most compelling images were made nearly a century or more ago, but notable among the modern images are those by Legado Ortiz Echag?e, photographing in Morocco in 1964. The book has beautiful reproductions and short textual pieces as varied as the photographs. Recommended for fine art and historical photography collections.
