Victoria Sambunaris’ gorgeous new monograph, Taxonomy of a Landscape, is officially in our warehouses and ready to ship! This first monograph on Sambunaris’ work consists of two handsome hardback volumes. The first includes a retrospective selection of her images from 2000 to 2013; the second documents the artist’s collected professional ephemera as a photographer and researcher. Included among this fascinating assortment of documents are images of books on geology and history, maps, artifacts such as mineral specimens, journals and road logs, as well as her small photographic sketches. An essay from MOCP Director Natasha Egan provides an insightful overview of this ardent chronicler of contemporary America.
Sambunaris recently had a beautiful feature on the book and her artistic process in Smithsonian, and was chosen by Interview mag as one of six best coffee table books to own. (The limited edition of her book is also now available. For $100, you get this great book and a 4 x 5 polaroid. They are selling quickly so act fast if you are interested.)
