Utopia / Dystopia
Geoffrey JamesBook - 2008
A major retrospective survey celebrating one of Canada's greatest landscape photographers, Geoffrey James.
Geoffrey James's photographic work over the past twenty years explores the natural environment and the way in which human activity registers upon it. All his photographs, from the tranquility of the Roman Campagna to the desolate demarcations of the U.S./Mexican border, reverberate with a sense of human habitation, which is not always formally evident.
This major retrospective includes an illustrated chronology of James's career and essays from Lori Pauli, Stephen Bann and Britt Salvesen.
