Lynn Geesaman, Poetics of Place
With introduction by the novelist and staff writer for The New Yorker, Jamaica Kincaid

Poetics of Place presents a wide sampling of the photographer's atmospheric black-and-white landscape compositions. Geesaman's images of elaborate topiary gardens, canals, and dramatic landscapes in France, Belgium, Italy and Germany employ unusual diffusion techniques that emphasize an imaginative and psychological interpretation of nature. With a haunting interplay between formal composition and the mutability of light, Gessaman's photographs are memorable for their lyric qualities and resonance.
