Photographs by Pentti Sammallahti.
48 pp., 30 duotone illustrations, 10x17".
In many respects, Pentti Sammallahti is a modern-day nomad, an itinerant photographer who records lands and peoples as he comes upon them. One of the most distinguishing elements of his work is the inclusion of animals-they wander into his photographs, lounge about, run around, and disappear as naturally as they appeared. This substantial new monograph—the first by an American publisher and already out-of-print-contains an excellent cross-section of his panoramic work, including two vertical panoramas that are printed on a separate, oversize sheet along with the accompanying text. This insert, integral to the book, has been signed by the artist.
