DARREN ALMOND: FULLMOON. Ed. by Hans Werner Holzwarth. Benedikt Taschen Verlag GmbH, Cologne, 2014. 400 pp. with 273 ills. (271 col.). 31 x 31 cm. ISBN 9783836546614 Trilingual in English, German and French.
Publisher's description: Poetic nightscapes: Darren Almond's nocturnal nature series In Fullmoon, the conceptual meets the poetic: British artist Darren Almond catches natural archetypes and silent landscapes in night photographs made under a full moon, with the shutter kept open for over a quarter of an hour. The long exposure time illuminates the landscape almost like daybreak, but the atmosphere is different... The book collects roughly 250 images which Almond captured following the full moon around the globe. Natural monuments like Yosemite National Park and the German Isle of Rugen draw links to Romantic paintings by Albert Bierstadt and Caspar David Friedrich, respectively, and the whole series circles around the possibility of Romantic themes today: majestic American mountains, austere Arctic ice fields, picturesque rocks by the seashore in Japan... This book covers all parts of the series from the turn of the century up until today, with an introduction by Sheena Wagstaff, head of the Modern and Contemporary Art Department of the Metropolitan Museum in New York, and an essay by curator Hamza Walker on photography and landscape in Darren Almond's Fullmoon. Also available in three Art Editions, all numbered and signed by the artist.
