Photographs by Stephen Strom. Essays by Albert Stewart and Gregory McNamee.
Dewi Lewis Publishing, 2009. 96 pp., 43 illustrations, 12x12".
Stephen Strom has photographed in the south western desert lands of the United States for more than 20 years and this book brings together, for the first time, a selection of his most powerful and memorable images.
Strom brings to this landscape the sensibilities of an astronomer who has lived in the desert for almost two decades. His photographs capture a land shaped both by the millennial forces of prehistory and also by yesterday’s cloudburst. His images have the power to compress vast desert spaces in an illusion of intimacy and comprehension, presenting undulations of colour and form which appear reimagined in a light that at once penetrates and sculpts.
