It was a great pleasure to be part of the collective show curated by William Ewing "Landmark: the Fields of Landscape Photography" in London at Somerset House in spring 2013. Now it is again a great honor to be part of the related publication with some works from the Monuments series.
Here is what Thames & Hudson says about the book:
Landmark is a defining survey of contemporary landscape photography. It features more than 230 images by over 100 leading photographers of today, all of whom present an individual viewpoint about a shared concern for our changing landscape and environment. The book is organized around ten themes and includes work by such distinguished practitioners as Edward Burtynsky, Stéphane Couturier, Mitch Epstein and Sally Mann. From restful, bucolic images capturing the last vestiges of ‘nature’, through shocking depictions of a sullied Earth, scarred and abused, to surreal and artificial landscapes where the ‘natural’ landscape is a highly controlled one, the book provides a thought-provoking meditation on the meaning of landscape in today’s world.
Here is what Francis Hodgson from The Financial Times said about the show:
William A. Ewing has curated what is surely the defining overview of the contemporary approaches to landscape. With an illuminating text explaining his own waymarks and signposts, and without making any bones about its being a necessarily personal selection, he gives us here a chance to reclaim landscape photography from its fractured state and see it in the round.
I am convinced that the book will get as much success as the show.
