Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0874173302, Hardcover)

Over the past decade, the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno has been assembling a collection of works depicting a broad range of landscapes known as The Altered Landscape: The Carol Franc Buck Collection. This book is intended as an introduction to The Altered Landscape Collection. But even more, it introduces readers to the specific aesthetic objectives of the artists creating the photographs and to the larger issues of humankind's attitudes toward and uses of the land. Lavishly illustrated with reproductions of work from The Altered Landscape Collection, this book is a breathtaking contribution to the history of contemporary art. Far more than an "art" book, The Altered Landscape is a provocative, richly intelligent exploration of the attitudes and values within which art is made, and of the ways by which artists, and ordinary people, respond to the world around them.
