Jonathan Bell of Wallpaper* magazine took some time with Victoria Sambunaris to discuss her recent monograph, Taxonomy of a Landscape, and what led her to this gorgeous body of work.

“The American landscape photographer Victoria Sambunaris has completed her first monograph, Taxonomy of a Landscape. Sambunaris studied at Yale and still teaches there, although her main passion is the regular road trips she takes into the American interior. The monograph brings together many of the images she took in South Texas – a rich natural landscape that is also shifting fast due to the demands of the energy industry – covering over a decade’s worth of shooting.” Keep reading…

About the IPPYs

The “IPPY” Awards were launched in 1996 and are designed to bring increased recognition to titles published by independent authors and publishers. They were established as the first awards program open exclusively to independents. This year’s IPPY competition attracted 3,650 entries in the national categories, 1,150 regional entries and 440 e-book entries. The medalists represented 44 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia, five Canadian provinces, and eight countries overseas.

“Independent publishers are growing in number, and the quality of their work is increasing,” said awards director Jim Barnes. “One element driving the high rate of excellence is participation from university presses. This year, 29 medalists came from university presses and 9 came from museums. Their elevated level of writing, editing, design and production raises the bar and inspires us all.”
