Richard Misrach: Violent Legacies (Three Cantos)
by Richard Misrach
Publisher's Description
"In Violent Legacies, the acclaimed photographer Richard Misrach has compiled three new series, or `cantos,' of photographs as part of his ongoing project focusing on the destructive effects of nuclear testing in the American desert. . . . The desert has long been a metaphor in Misrach's art. In this work it undergoes a subtle metamorphosis and becomes a reflection of militarism. . . . Misrach's commitment to the preservation of our environment against man-made forces that threaten it" is conveyed in this volume, [which] . . . "sends a stark and urgent message to [the] American audience. . . . An original text by Susan Sontag accompanies the images."--the publisher.
