Title Ancient Shape of Man

Author Hawkins, Eric John


ISBN: 9780966691566

Condition: Hardcover



Using a large-format view cameras, photographer John Eric Hawkins sojourns into deserts and forests, old quarries and rugged shorelines, seeking patterns and parallels in nature that are manifested in rock, wood, sky, plants, and the occasional nude in the landscape. He then takes his captured exposures into the darkroom, where he can reinterpret what he has seen in subtle mid-tones and charcoal blacks. Printed as large duotone plates centered in square, medium-gloss pages, Hawkins' images of Monterey and Taos, bristle cone pines and bull kelp, and dark-skinned and light-skinned women, are set with poetry by Nate Benyousky and Shari Messenger.
