Signed by the Photographer\n

\nThe land wears its furrows the way a lion wears the bars of a cage. The picture is the record of a hard lesson taught by an unforgiving landscape. Properly considered, such scenes can teach us our place in the creation. What could be more beautiful than a landscape larger than our ideas? What is more beautiful than a brutally honest face? ? From the Introduction by Richard Manning Don Kirby grew up turning the surface of the earth upside down, the son of a sharecropper in northwestern Missouri. A half century later, he has emerged as the preeminent photographer of wheat country, a master of both his medium and chosen subject matter. Kirby?s sweeping, geometric photographs of wheatfields in the American Northwest manage to convey both a sense of wonder and a deep understanding of the land ? our dependence on it for our survival, and its own survival of the uses and abuses we impose upon it. \n

\nThe artist?s first monograph, Wheatcountry is printed in a first edition of 2,000 casebound copies. The forty plates are beautifully printed in duotone on matt art paper, accompanied by essays from Richard Manning and Jay Dusard. Don Kirby?s photographs have been exhibited and collected throughout the United States.\n
