Overview

"Geoffrey James, who is widely acclaimed for his photographs of place, spent months tracking the prairie light while photographing a city and its prairie setting. His exquisite eye, which has established his international reputation as one of the finest contemporary photographers of our time, captures the changing seasons, fleeting conditions and many moods of a habitation and a landscape. These luminous images exemplify the sensibility of a particular place and envision the very soul of the prairie experience that has so tellingly informed Canadian fiction." "The photographs, which formed the basis of a well-reviewed exhibition, The Lethbridge Project, at the Southern Alberta Art Gallery; have now been put together with a text from Rudy Wiebe. In brief, illuminating stories, he draws on many layers of history as well as his personal memories to convey the sense of land, water, weather and human action that characterize a city on the prairie." Place presents forty-six of Geoffrey James's expressive and evocative photographs, reproduced in rich tritone and set in a beautifully designed volume.
