Publisher's description: This recent body of work from Glasgow-based photographer Roger Palmer, Jetty, documents his transcontinental spiral journey from Robert Smithson's birthplace in Passaic, New Jersey, to his 1970s earthwork Spiral Jetty in the Great Salt Lake, Utah. Smithson wrote essays about both places and Palmer travels from one context to another as a way of charting Smithson's story. A conceptual photographer who uses symbols, journeys and objects to carry layers of history, Palmer presents in this elegant book large reproductions of 47 silver gelatine photographs in the order of their exposure. Various references to Smithson's oeuvre may be found in the images. Jetty also contains a map painting and color photographs made close to the beginning and end of the journey and an essay by Smithson scholar Timothy D. Martin.
