Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For centuries, visitors have been awed by ancient Egypt's monuments, seeing in them testimony both to a mysterious past and to forces greater and more subtle than the corporeal world they inhabit.

This book speaks to that testimony with a fresh, exploratory voice, using stunning photographs complemented by quotations from a range of textual sources. A brooding face carved in stone; monuments of unsparing majesty; clouds spread out against an immutable sky; delicate patterns of palm fronds caught in a shimmering half-light--Sarite Sanders' haunting photographs bring the enigmatic narrative of Egypt's ancient monuments into sharp relief, forcing us to see pyramids, statues, and the architectural sweep of temples as if for the first time.

Photographed using infared film, the images are often dark and edgy, hinting at an underlying restlessness and the transience of all those who stand in the monuments' shadows.

Sarite Sanders is a photographer who has traveled to Egypt over three decades in the company of writers, scholars, artists, and Egyptologists.

Synopsis:

Egypt??'s ancient heritage in stunning infra-red black-and-white photography

Synopsis:

"Sanders' images are neither descriptive nor picturesque--they are intellectually demanding and uncompromising witnesses of a 'here-and-now' experience of ancient Egypt." --Dorothea Arnold
