From the publisher: "Robert Stivers has quickly emerged as one of the foremost contemporary photographers. In this, his second book of photographs in three years, Stivers extends, deepens, and complicates the themes of mystery and movement, sensuality and spirituality, and the search for individual identity that occupied him in his first book, Robert Stivers: Photographs, (1997). In his new work, he juxtaposes the human figure with architectural images, thus pointing to the reciprocity between consciousness and a sense of place that is central to an understanding of the self. The aesthetic throughout couples soft focus with rich and subtle textures and tones. The effect is a collection of breathtaking images that are wonderfully coherent and at once haunting and mysterious, deeply spiritual, and perfectly choreographed."
