From the publisher: "In these pages we witness a subtle merging of three art forms: the photography of a sensitive and skilled artist, the aesthetic and vernacular expression of architects and builders, and contemporary bookmaking. While one is the vehicle and another the subject matter, the ascendant art is that of photography. It is the work of an artist whose ability to arrest our attention--to delight and instruct the eye--is at once quiet and unobtrusive and compelling."
