Thomas Joshua Cooper, one of the most celebrated and distinctive landscape photographers working today, explores the Eastern United States with a special focus on the East End of Long Island and the Hudson River. Throughout his career, Thomas Joshua Cooper has focused on the landscape through the lens of historical and cultural geography and cartography. Working exclusively outdoors with an 1898 AGFA field camera, Cooper has established a unique aesthetic and philosophy. This collection features twenty images that Cooper made on the East End of Long Island and Shelter Island in 2016, juxtaposed with earlier works depicting sites along the Hudson River, Cape Cod, and Maine. Each photograph is accompanied by texts that provide eloquent historical and geographic context. A special section on Cooper’s unique and painstaking artistic process offers readers an understanding of how Cooper researches, experiences, and captures the essence of the locations he photographs.

This book showcases Thomas Joshua Cooper’s monumental forty-five year career as a landscape photographer. Working solely with an 1898 Agfa field camera, Thomas Joshua Cooper has established himself as one of the foremost photographers of our time. His magnificent black-and-white seascapes explore specific points on the globe—often at the most remote areas, where sea and land meet. Fans of Cooper’s Atlas project, in which he has charted the Atlantic Basin, will be thrilled to find a generous selection of those images here—abstractions ranging from pitch black to clear white, and subtle gradations in between. Exquisitely reproduced, these photographs reveal the coastlines of the five continents that encircle the Atlantic Ocean. This volume also features images that deal with themes such as the earth’s changing environment, historical narratives, and North America’s great rivers and their sources. Enhancing this book are an essay by Michael Govan; biographies of the artist by Rebecca Morse and Anne Lyden, International Photography Curator at the National Galleries of Scotland; and a chronicle of the Atlas project by Christie Davis of the Lannan Foundation. Poems by Robinson Jeffers and Theodore Roethke round out this retrospective book of one of the most celebrated and distinctive photographers working today.
