Acquainted With the Night
Paperback      ISBN: 0847819795
The mysterious, seductive essence of the night has long entranced the imagination of artists and writers, and now it is the focus of a unique book that pairs evocative black-and-white photography with classic and contemporary poetry. Lynn Saville's photographs, shot after dark in and around New York and at other urban and rural sites in the United States, Portugal, Greece, and India, reveal unusual aspects of familiar cities and monuments as well as the dusky allure of fringe areas such as Manhattan's industrial district and desolate waterfronts. Accompanying the photographs are 35 poems and poetic excerpts about the night, beginning with Robert Frost's "Acquainted with the Night," which inspired the book's title and mood. Selected here are works by Walt Whitman, Langston Hughes, Charles Simic, and Octavio Paz, among other award-winning poets, and citations from ancient verse such as the Rig Veda and The Epic of Gilgamesh. This volume speaks with contemplative beauty to those who love photography and poetry, and especially to all denizens of the night.

Places in the Sand
Places in the Sand
Hardcover      ISBN: 1885254768
Traveling thousands of miles across vast deserts, Margaret Courtney-Clarke has photographed the remote and seldom-seen landscapes of Africa's magnificent and delicate environment, where nature wages an ongoing struggle to survive. Places in the Sand portrays unfolding dunes blown constantly by the wind, dreamlike roads that lead nowhere, the fragile cracked ground stretching endlessly toward the horizon. Born and raised on a ranch at the edge of the Namib Desert, Courtney-Clarke's photographic work reflects an extraordinary blend of sophisticated European and ancient African cultures as well as an innate love for and instinctive understanding of the eternal beauty of the land. In Places in the Sand, she turns a nostalgic and knowing eye to the landscape, creating evocative slivers of panoramas in which earth touches sky, poetic images of abandoned shacks engulfed by sand and time, and jewel-like shots framing textures, majestic colors, and forms.
Then Palestine
Then Palestine
Hardcover      ISBN: 0893818348
A gripping eyewitness account of the Palestinian plight. Larry Towell, one of the finest photojournalists working today, made seven trips to Palestine between 1993 and 1997 and documented the Arab/Israeli conflict in a powerful series of pictures. Immediate and full of raw feeling, his images bring the viewer into the active center of a bitter struggle. The photographs reveal the tragedy of a society subsumed in violence: a fist clenched around a rock thrusts through the frame, a soldier jerks a small child off the ground by the wrist, a mother covers her face with a photograph of her gun-wielding dead son. I join the foray and run as close as I can. Open-fire regulations sanction shoot-to-kill. We run through the alleys. We hear them behind us. The footsteps are catching up. We hear the weight of guns, boots, and the grunting that stops dead as we turn the corner and take chairs in the assembly of mourners. "A sniper, fifteen meters to my left, crouches into position with a high-powered rifle fixed on me, playing a nerve-wracking game. Others [point] at the motionless old men who continue to ignore them, grieving the death of their boys. Their fighters. Eventually the soldiers tire of the amusement and leave."--from Larry Towell's journals
