Overview

If we are fortunate, during our lives we will visit a place that evokes the sacred and resonates with our deeper selves. This stunning volume, with breathtaking images by Lynn Davis and insightful text by new-age author A. T. Mann, captures just such magical spaces-archetypal and architectural manifestations of the sacred. Davis and Mann illustrate the many ways in which people have used and understood their sacred landscapes throughout history and around the world, from hillside Celtic oak initiation groves to Megalithic open-air sanctuaries to Machu Picchu and Oregon's Crater Lake. Sacred Landscapes reinforces the imperative for us to rediscover beauty and reaffirm our relationship with nature.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This meditative offering by popular spiritualist Mann (Sacred Architecture, Sacred Sexuality) is steeped in Eastern religions, animism, and mysticism, with chapters such as "Ascending the Sacred Mountain," "Flow," and "Being and Nothingness." Evocations of nature's mysteries and the sacral are tied to signature duotone images of 57 sites located in 30 countries by outdoor photographer Davis (Monument; American Monument) that date to the 1980s. Mann's eloquent explorations of sacred places are well matched to Davis's minimalist imagery, controlled lighting, and spare compositions. Contemplative solitude dominates page after page of desert landscapes and sculpted dunes, waterfalls, groves, icebergs, raked gravel, pyramids, mosques, prayer flags, and ancient temples. VERDICT Guaranteed rapture for contemplative minds and adherents of Eastern religions; photography devotees will appreciate what amounts to a retrospective of Davis's stunning nature images.—Russell T. Clement, Northwestern Univ. Lib., Evanston, IL
