Photographs by Esko Mannikko. Text by Maaretta Jaukkuri and Gary Michael Dault.
80 pp., numerous color illustrations, 11½x9½".
A brilliant Finnish photographer who works primarily in rich, saturated color, Mannikko has been the subject of numerous exhibitions both in his homeland and abroad. The work presented in this monograph was made in and around San Antonio and Batesville, Texas near the Mexican border. He is most concerned with people and their surroundings, both natural and created. The printing, done in Finland, is lush and reminds one of the award-winning book, IChickenMoon of several years ago.
