Fertile Geometry.

Fertile Geometry. Photographs by David Pollock. Edited and designed by Urbanautica. Introductions by David Pollock, Andrea Filippin and David R. Montgomery. Punto Marte, 2011. 64 pp., 30 colour illustrations, 28x28cm. Images from photo-eye.

Book description:

"Over a two year period, David Pollock photographed the farm fields of Saanich Peninsula on Southern Vancouver Island , Canada.

The photographs often place us within a deep open space with a vantage point that directs our vision to the soil and presents the farm topography as a palimpsest upon which we discern the traces of farm work.

They speak to us of the remnants of human actions in this landscape and situate us within a continuum of constant interaction with the natural world that is both physical and symbolic."
