Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison revisits themes explored in their first book, including man’s destruction and healing of the planet. Shot in color, the photographs utilize the ParkeHarrisons’ early technique of applying pigment by hand, directly to their large-scale prints. Robert ParkeHarrison once again appears as the Everyman of the book’s visual narrative—one who despite the will to effect change is all too often rendered impotent and ineffectual. The ParkeHarrisons also explore the epic landscape as a metaphor for the state of mankind, particularly alluding to recent natural disasters and their aftermath.
