Editorial Reviews

Review

Sometimes inspiration arrives when you least expect it. That's certainly true for "Stone Walls: Personal Boundaries," the latest book by the photographer Mariana Cook. For eight years Ms. Cook took her two medium-format cameras and a tripod to places as far afield as Malta, Peru and the Aran Islands, searching for dry stone walls built without mortar but with plenty of patience and ingenuity. (Carol Kino The New York Times 2011-08-14)

Format: Hardcover
This is a gorgeous and in its way, a very moving book. Cook is a wonderful photographer. I have all of her books. But this new one finds the mystery and magic in of all things, stone walls. And great beauty. There is both a poetry to the images as well as the text. This is one of those books you will want to look at repeatedly. And one you will want to share with others.

Format: Hardcover
If you've ever been fascinated by stone walls - even one! - this book is a must-see/read. Rich black and white photographs, beautifully printed, supported by informative, insightful texts will transport you to places far and near, both physically and metaphorically. History of the land and civilization is in the stones. Mariana Cook, an accomplished photographer of many books, has proven her vitality as an artist but turning her camera - and curiosity - in an entirely new direction. The rewards are obvious when you open the book.
