Book Description 
  
Terry Falke's wry, lyrical photographs center on the terrain of the American Southwest and the ubiquity of humanity s imprint on it. The images in Observations in an Occupied Wilderness both honor and subvert the grand tradition of western landscape photography, conveying the bleak splendor of the land and Falke's sheer love of looking. Gorgeous, sardonic, and playful, Falke's work emphasizes beauty and incongruity, and is as much about human nature as it is about the land. Shot with a large-format camera, the resultant images are personal and provocative, raising as many questions than they answer. This remarkable debut monograph is a shrewd exploration of our last wild places.
