Publisher's Description
Japanese photographer Taji Matsue works to record the earth's surface - both the natural and the manmade - with the dispassionate eye of a geographer, his trained profession. Inspired by American historical traditions from 19th century landscape photography of Carleton Watkins to the New Topography of Lewis Baltz, Matsue has become known for his unique aerial photographs of the urban landscape: Chicago from the Sears Tower, for example. Matsue's large- scalephotographs consistently and consciously eschew depth in order to more graphically record the image. Also featured are Matsue's video works and 'moving photographs' that are first viewed as still images but, when observed over time, begin to subtly change. This beautifully constructed book was recently included in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's, The Photobook: A History, Part 1
