With a focus on the settler societies of the United States and Australia, Photography and Landscape is a new critical account of landscape photography created through a unique collaboration between a photography writer and a landscape photographer. Beginning with the frontier days of the American West, the subsequent century-long popularity of landscape photography is exemplified by images from Carleton Watkins to Ansel Adams, the New Topographics to Richard Misrach, all of whose works are considered here. Along with discussions of other contemporary photographers, this extensively illustrated volume demonstrates the influence of settler societies on landscape photography, in which skilled photographers captured the fascination with and the appeal of the land and its expanse.            The latest installment in Intellect’s Critical Photography series, Photography and Landscape is a visually striking introduction to one of the most important modes of photography.

Rod Giblett is honorary associate professor of environmental humanities in the School of Communication and Creative Arts at Deakin University in Australia. He is the author of Black Swan Lake: Life of a Wetland and Cities and Wetlands: The Return of the Repressed in Nature and Culture.

Juha Tolonen is a renowned landscape photographer and a lecturer at both Edith Cowan University and Curtin University in Australia.
