A NEW FORM OF BEAUTY: GLEN CANYON BEYOND CLIMATE CHANGE. Peter Friederici. University of Arizona Press, Tucson, 2016. 176 pp. with 70 col. ills. 27 x 29 cm. LC 2015-46812 ISBN 9780816531929 In English.
Publisher's description: In Glen Canyon waters rose, inundating petroglyphs and creating Lake Powell. Now the Colorado River basin is experiencing the longest dry spell in modern history -- one that shows alarming signs of becoming the new normal. In A New Form of Beauty photographer Peter Goin and writer Peter Friederici tackle science from the viewpoint of art, creating a lyrical exploration in words and photographs, setting Glen Canyon and Lake Powell as the quintessential example of the challenges of perceiving place in a new era of radical change. Through evocative photography and extensive reporting, the two document their visits to the canyon country over a span of many years. By motorboat and kayak, they have ventured into remote corners of the once-huge reservoir to pursue profound questions: What is this place? How do we see it? What will it become? Goin's full-color photographs are organized in three galleries -- Flora and Fauna, Artifacts, and Low Water -- interspersed with three essays by Friederici, and an epilogue gallery on Fire. The book includes two foldout photographs, which allow readers to fully see Lake Powell at high water and low water points.
