America's endangered coasts : photographs from Texas to Maine( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"America's Endangered Coasts: Photographs from Texas to Maine is a pioneering and thought-provoking photographic survey of coastal areas of the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts of the United States that are already threatened by a rising sea. Using a topographic aesthetic that combines straightforward, highly detailed color photographs with GPS locations and elevations above sea level for each site, this book photographically responds to low-lying areas that are frequently over-developed and vulnerable to high tides and storms such as Hurricanes Katrina, Irene, and Sandy. This book contains 168 color photographs and two essays, one by Liz Wells, a prominent British writer who offers a photo/art perspective of the work, and one by Dr. James E. Hansen, based on his prophetic scientific understandings of the climate-change crisis and some ways to address it.... America's Endangered Coasts promises to make an important contribution to the world of photographic art and to the public's awareness of climate change and its impact on everyday life. The book serves as both a warning of things to come and a photographic document of lasting historical value, since many areas that Ganis has photographed will be underwater by 2100. It is the first book of its kind to offer such comprehensive geographic coverage of representative areas along the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts that are threatened now and in the future by a rising sea."--Publisher's website

Consuming the American landscape by John Ganis( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Ganis has chronicled the effects of the development and extraction industries in every region of the United States over almost two decades. These are disturbing images - desolate strip mines, clear-cut forests, industrial parks, landfill sites and terrains flattened for housing developments - a thesaurus of America's 'civilized' incursions into the wildness of nature, a charting of debris-strewn topographies, and a cogent report on the abdication of any reverence towards the land." "The introductory essay, by Robert Sobieszek of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, gives an overview of historical responses to the American landscape and contextualises the work. Poems that resulted from a collaboration between Ganis and the late anthropologist and poet Stanley Diamond add a further dimension. There is also an afterword by George Thompson, Director of The Center for American Places."--Dust Jacket
