For more than a decade Allison Davies has been quietly making landscape photographs and ambiguous self-portraits of haunting beauty. In Outerland, her debut collaboration with Charles Lane Press, Davies portrays herself as a solitary interplanetary wanderer lost in the spectacular vistas of alien worlds.
Presented without text or explanation of any kind, and with only a handful of mysterious symbols to help orient ourselves in Davies’ imagined cosmos, Outerland offers a compelling new perspective on self-portraiture within the narrative of modern landscape photography.
Lushly printed in a large horizontal format and designed with a unique Tyvek binding, Outerland was edited by photographer Richard Renaldi and consists of 65 full color plates. Allison Davies received her MFA from Yale in 1999.
