Every other season (or so it seems) a great title that slips past me and heads out into the world unannounced through our pages. The New World's Old World, published by the University of New Mexico Press, appears on that short list and cries to be duly noted. The book surveys photographers who have imaged the ancient, archaeological sites of the New World; the largest concentration of such sites is found in the American Southwest, Mexico, Central America, and the Andean Region of South America. The list of contributors is thorough, beginning with a slew of adventurers in the 19th century and continuing up through Ed Ranney and Linda Connor in modern times. Ranney (photo at right) is of particular interest, having photographed sites in the Andean area for nearly 40 years. His contribution includes an essay entitled "Images of a Sacred Geography," in which he notes "the tendency among some contemporary photographers to work at ancient sites for their expressive potential rather than their inherent cultural associations."
