Far Flung Places: The Photography of Barbara Sparks
by Barbara Sparks
Publisher's Description
Barbara Sparks's passion for photography began in 1959, during college, when she took an art tour of Europe. On that trip, her fascination deepened when a man-whom she would later marry-gave her Edward Steichen's book 'The Family of Man.' Since then, she has traveled to such far-flung destinations as the Cappadocia region of Turkey; the Kali Gandaki River in Nepal; the Mayan villages of Guatemala; and the dusty, light-filled hill towns of Italy. A passionate naturalist, Sparks has also turned her camera on Colorado and New Mexico, revealing her fine-tuned and sensitive eye for light and people. A constant theme of indigenous cultures runs through this book. With a ringing clarity, Sparks focuses on definitive landscapes and how man assimilates.
