Light, Michael

Santa Fe, NM: Radius Books, 2019.

First printing. (148) pp., 10.5 x 16.5 inches. Printed paper over boards, without dust-jacket, as issued. Essays by William Fox, Charles Hood, and Leah Ollman. New. Item #4008

The fourth volume in aerial photographer Light's ambitious series of books with Radius, documenting the contemporary West. Shot at low altitudes and at oblique angles, with post-processing that heightens and intensifies the colors, the double-page full-bleed photographs stunningly reveal the traces and impacts of civilization on the land in the arid half of the USA. Each book in the series uses a different innovative binding structure to present two bodies of work. In this case, the book is a dos-a-dos, with the texts sandwiched in the middle. A large (32 x 24 inch) color reproduction of the famous map from Fremont's 1843-44 expedition, in which he described/defined the Great Basin, is folded and housed in a pocket at the center of the book.

Price: $60.00
