ANNOUNCES WINTER 2013 PUBLICATION OF:
TAXONOMY OF A LANDSCAPE
Essay by Natasha Egan, short story by Barry Lopez
Photographs by Victoria Sambunaris
ABOUT THE BOOK
For more than a decade, Victoria Sambunaris has traversed the United States equipped with a 5 x 7 wooden field camera, sheets of color negative film, and an “unrelenting curiosity to understand the American landscape and our place in it.”
There are two volumes included in this first book on Sambunaris’ work. Volume 1 contains a full retrospective selection of images from 2000 to 2013. Volume 2 is a photo documentation of the artist’s collected ephemera that she gathers on her travels, including books on geology and history, maps, artifacts such as mineral specimens, journals, road logs, as well as her small photographic sketches. There is also an essay from MOCP Director Natasha Egan, a reprinted short story by Barry Lopez titled “The Mappist,” and a full chronology of the artist’s career.
