Overview

Over the years, Lynn Davis has become widely celebrated for her large-scale photographs of "monuments" of the human and natural landscape. Her forth-coming monograph, Monument, presents images made in Egypt, Australia, Cambodia, Burma, Thailand, Syria, Jordan, Turkey, Yemen, Lebanon, Greenland, and the United States. Whether depicting the ancient pyramids of Giza, the temples of Cambodia, or the icebergs of Greenland, Davis articulates both the omnipotent forces of nature and the most resolute building endeavors ever undertaken by man. Davis' aesthetic is cool and refined; her sparse composition and controlled modelling of light evoke solitude and contemplation. Since a 1986 visit to Greenland to photograph icebergs, travel has become an essential component of her work, building on the long-standing tradition of travel photography. Her minimal imagery displays a quiet reverence for the beauty and grace of her subjects, and a thoughtful appreciation for their creators' accomplishment. These photographs are accompanied by texts by Patti Smith and Rudolph Wurlitzer that contemplate the sheer beauty of Davis' photography and the context of travel in which they are produced.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This superb book of large-format photographs pays homage to the concept of "monument"--both as natural forms and ancient ruins of human creation. Collected here are ghostly photographs of icebergs sculpted by wind, atmospheric images of geysers, striking portrayals of rock formations, misty images of Niagara Falls, and pictures of the pyramids and the Meenakshi Temple. Each of the photographs is brilliantly executed, both technically and aesthetically, and the breadth of the photoessay is most impressive. The book as a whole is beautifully designed and printed, and the 60 plates are carefully reproduced on matte paper, giving the whole thing a touch of antique character. Gazing at these magnificent structures, now crumbling back into the earth, one is left with a sense of quiet dignity and wonder. A fine book by an outstanding photographer; highly recommended for public and academic libraries, especially libraries with substantial fine art photography collections.--Raymond Bial, Parkland Coll. Lib., Champaign, IL Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
