Book Description 
  
With these monumental landscape photographs, David Parker is making a clear statement about what the art of photography still might achieve. His imagery is an intriguing blend of the objective and the subjective, the formal and the allegorical. It is complex, rich in illusion, yet it remains photography. First and foremost, it is the sheer visual elan, the sublime beauty with which he has transcribed these mysterious views of rock, canyon, and mountain that draws us into contemplation of their more subtle virtues. This is landscape photography that enchants; its space is deep space, surrounding and thrilling us. It is a delight to see, in David Parker's large but not overlarge images, photographs that wear their size easily. They were conceived on a large scale, and the size to which they have been enlarged is correct conceptually, technically, and aesthetically.These are theatrical photographs in the best sense: they are literate, thoughtful, and imaginative, and truly a joy to explore. Edition of 1,500.
