Item description for The Eternal Light of Egypt: A Photographic Journey by Sarite Sanders...

For centuries visitors have been awed by ancient Egypts monuments, seeing in them testimony to a mysterious past and the remembrance of forces greater and more subtle than the corporeal world they inhabit. With stunning photography complemented by quotations from a range of textual sources, The Eternal Light of Egypt speaks to that testimony with a fresh, exploratory voice. A brooding face carved in stone, monuments of unsparing majesty, clouds spread out against an immutable sky, delicate patterns of palm fronds caught in a shimmering half-light. Like the figurative language of dreams, Sarite Sanderss haunting black-and-white photographs bring the enigmatic narrative of Egypts ancient monuments into sharp relief, forcing us to see pyramids, statues, or the breathtaking architectural sweep of temples once again for the first time, in an austere and unscripted visual poetry. Photographed using infra-red film, the images are often dark and edgy, hinting at an underlying restlessness and the transience of all those who stand in the monuments shadow. With over 100 black-and-white photographs, The Eternal Light of Egypt is both a meditation and a rare, lyrical work, inviting the observer to revisit and engage with Egypts most enduring legacy to the imagination.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Eternal Light of Egypt: A Photographic Journey?

Mesmerizing  Nov 1, 2009
This book is a photo journey through Egypt. It is shot with infrared film in black and white. It is just short of 200 pages with captions of famous writing about Egypt under each photo.My only compaint is you have to look in the back for what is in the picture. So you have to go back and forth,but it wasn't that much of a hassle. This is a beautiful book for the price and well worth it. These black and white shots remind you of Harry Burton.
