Editorial Reviews


"For eighteen months in the mid-eighties, photographer Richard Misrach roamed through the natural beauty and man-made devastation of Bravo 20 [bombing range], while Myriam Weisang Misrach researched the history of military expansionism -- and local protest -- in the West. The result is a book that not only documents the ongoing battle for Bravo 20, but offers a suggestion on what best to do with the burst shells, bombed-out buses, automobile hulls, and other naval detritus: leave it right where it is." -- Mother Jones

"Perhaps the most stunning photo book I've seen this year." -- Kurt Wolf, San Francisco Bay Guardian

Format: Paperback
(Re)evaluating Nature especially in the new millenium is a new trend in thinking about the landscape. Misrach initiates this conversation with this early book about the changing face of the American West that has been transformed into a bombed-out wasteland. Somewhat beautiful? Yes, I thin kso. He approaches the subject sarcastically serious with a proposal to turn this highly violent landscape into America's newest national park, one which I would be the first visitor. His photographs instigate new questions in landscape photography and the new definition of "beauty" in all visual studies. A must for any artist/architect/planner. There is a new landscape. Misrach has found it.
