COUNTERPOINT, by R.& S. ParkeHarrison - 2008 [Ltd 1st Ed]




by Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison

The intriguing and otherworldly art of two photographers who took photography to the level of a fine art, giving it deep meaning and psychological power. "My photographs tell stories of loss, human struggle, and personal exploration within landscapes scarred by technology and over-use…. I strive to metaphorically and poetically link laborious actions, idiosyncratic rituals and strangely crude machines into tales about our modern experience."[Wikipedia] This sentence of Robert ParkeHarrison defines the aim and effect of his art, which, through the visual presentation of strange tales sometimes difficult to understand, tells the story of our civilization and its abuses, struggles, and aspirations. Approx. 70 pages (33 color plates). 11 x 14.5 inches.

FIRST EDITION. Limited at 3000 copies. 33 color plates. List of plates at end of volume.
