Out of print. From the publisher: "Over the years, Lynn Davis has become widely celebrated for her large-scale photographs of "monuments" of the human and natural landscape. Her forthcoming monograph, Monument, presents images made in Egypt, Australia, Cambodia, Burma, Thailand, Syria, Jordan, Turkey, Yemen, Lebanon, Greenland, and the United States. Whether depicting the ancient pyramids of Giza, the temples of Cambodia, or the icebergs of Greenland, Davis articulates both the omnipotent forces of nature and the most resolute building endeavors ever undertaken by man. Davis's aesthetic is cool and refined, her sparse composition and controlled modeling of light evoke solitude and contemplation."
