Synopsis

"Unquiet" is a word often used to describe the photographs of Rosemary Laing. Usually presented in a landscape format, suspended midway between fantasy and reality, her images render the impossible possible. Laing achieves this not through digital manipulation, but through her ingenious use of perspective and lighting. Her works often appear in series, and this volume surveys these series: from the witty and beautiful "Flight Research" and the alarming "A Dozen Useless Actions for Grieving Blondes" to the hallucinogenic "Groundspeed" and others. Lavishly illustrated, this book allows the photographs of this popular artist to be appreciated in the fullness of their warmth and eloquence, theatricality and imagination.
