1 - 2 weeks availability


Humanlandscapes is a special fusion of talent by physician and photographer P. Miller and poet Peter Crane, producing a lyrical and unabashed tribute to the human body, beauty, the feminine, and the natural world. The core of the book is comprised of images of the body in many different Southwestern settings as well as in the studio, and in both color and black-and-white. The oversized book allows the images to be presented elegantly and each to be paired with a poem specifically written for it, setting the tone and expanding the mood. "Humanlandscapes" is divided into four sections, each addressing a different aspect of the human experience. The images come from an awareness of the human body to the spiritual and natural forces surrounding it. What is the character of the feminine, and what does it mean to be human? The images and poetry lead us through a journey of discovery to celebrate both the physical and spiritual parts of the self. This unique book brings together rich images and text in a tapestry of visual and emotional rewards.

About Author

California physician P. Miller's love of photography started in an overland tour of Africa, covering six months' time and 10,000 miles of mostly dirt roads. The challenge of capturing a fleeting moment of time in an image has been Miller's passion ever since. The American Southwest with its sculptured canyons, rustling streams, and timeless beauty has also become a narrative told through pictures. Miller's images have been published in several books and shown in numerous art shows in California and the Southwest. Peter Crane is a San Jose poet and journalist who has lived in Northern California for over thirty years. Crane has written extensively about San Jose and the Santa Clara Valley and his work has appeared in both local and national publications. Rulan Tangen is artistic director of Dancing Earth - Indigenous Contemporary Dance Creations. She is a dancer, choreographer, and dance teacher who lives in the unique beauty of the high desert Southwest.
