Item description for Mark Steenerson: The Cement War by Mark Steenerson...

Johnny Cash with a camera. --Robert Frank The Cement War is an elegiac meditation on life and the nature of existence by musician, poet, artist, and photographer Mark Steenerson. Combining drawings, handwritten texts, and photographs, this volume produces a lyrical paean to the road-trip of life. As Steenerson sings it, "IWe are lonely creatures flying through life with but a single wing and something we are desperately trying to remember..." His texts are his songs are his photographs. In The Cement War, he creates a collage of experience and a layering of emotion for a profoundly moving and personal work of art.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mark Steenerson: The Cement War?

A book Experience  Dec 12, 2005
What can I say about this book? Unique, Painful, Honest, Compelling come to mind.

It is not the photographs, or the writing or the drawings by themselves, which make this book work. It is the experience which gives you pause to reflect long after you put it down.
A truly original work   Feb 11, 2005
Steenerson's photos alone would be worth celebrating but add in his eccentric, Blakean drawings and genuinely beat poetry and you've got the most original piece of book art published by a major publisher in years. Like Robert Frank and Diane Arbus, Steenerson clearly cares about the people he photographs, people who we generally look past or ignore. And like these master photographers, he finds that split second in his tableaus and people when the naked truth of our human condition is revealed in all its sadness and sacred beauty. His poetry and drawings weave through these images to present what can only be called a transcendent vision, but one without drugs or phony mysticism; the kind we all might have if we could both face and love ourselves and each other as we really are long enough to let it change us.
