Outerland. Photographs by Allison Davies. Charles Lane Press, 2010. 144 pp., 65 colour illustrations, Tyvek binding, 15¼x11¼". (Click individual images for larger view).

"For more than a decade Allison Davies has been quietly making landscape photographs and ambiguous self-portraits of haunting beauty.

In 'Outerland', her debut collaboration with Charles Lane Press, Davies portrays herself as a solitary interplanetary wanderer lost in the spectacular vistas of alien worlds.

Presented without text or explanation of any kind, and with only a handful of mysterious symbols to help orient ourselves in Davies’ imagined cosmos, 'Outerland' offers a compelling new perspective on self-portraiture within the narrative of modern landscape photography."
