This book is a large format edition of my "Synesthetic Landscapes" portfolio (smaller-formatted editions of which are also available on Blurb). These images are an experiment in applying photography of the small and mundane (technically, macros of diffuse reflections of scattered everyday objects from curved metal surfaces and light refracted from fragments of colored glass, captured using very shallow depth of field) to evoke an experience of mysterious, ethereal grandeur. The portfolio is "synesthetic" in the sense that, just as synesthetes use two or more senses to represent an ostensible "reality," the images in this portfolio collectively evoke an experience of reality as induced by two vastly different representational forms (one literal, the other implied, and both ineffable landscapes of the imagination).
