About this title


These stunning photographs -- in the tradition of Ansel Adams and other masters -- will leave you breathless. The photographic images in this collection have been specially reproduced in close consultation with Bruce Barnbaum, using the latest printing technology. Barnbaum is equally adept at capturing the architectonics of the natural landscape and the architecture of manmade forms. In the intricate relationships of shapes and objects, he hears a natural music. The four movements of this extraordinary photographic study are "The Landscape," "The Cathedrals of England," "Urban Geometrics." and "The Slit Canyons." In each section, Barnbaum demonstrates his extraordinary ability to adapt mind, eye, heart, and technique to his subject matter. Throughout, he shows us the beauty of the concrete subject matter and its profound implications. As Bill Jay writes in his introduction: "...the content explodes outward until it reverberates with every aspect of existence, creating ever widening ripples across the sea of consciousness."

From Library Journal:

Oversized and richly printed in tritone, this book presents, in four carefully edited "movements," classical photographs of the landscape, English cathedrals, urban architecture, and the Southwest's amazing slit canyons. In an introduction to each section, Birnbarum suggests musical corollaries for his subjects. His prose doesn't sing, but never mind; the photographs more than speak for themselves. Detailed technical information is included for the ambitious reader. Recommended. Suzanne Kotz, Publications Dept., Seattle Art Museum
