Landmark is a defining survey of contemporary landscape photography. It features more than 230 images by over 100 leading photographers of today, all of whom present an individual viewpoint about a shared concern for our changing landscape and environment. The book is organized around ten themes and includes work by such distinguished practitioners as Edward Burtynsky, Stephane Couturier, Mitch Epstein and Sally Mann. From restful, bucolic images capturing the last vestiges of `nature', through shocking depictions of a sullied Earth, scarred and abused, to surreal and artificial landscapes where the `natural' landscape is a highly controlled one, the book provides a thought-provoking meditation on the meaning of landscape in today's world. The well-known writer and curator William A. Ewing contributes introductory texts to each of the sections, as well as the preface and introduction. Landmark also features statements by the artists themselves.
