Product description

Review

"Seldom has an American artist-in any genre-offered such clear-eyed images of the natural world. Skirting all the usual landscape conventions-sublime, elegiac, sentimental-Janet Malcolm has turned her wintry gaze on these most ordinary leaves, and the result is wondrous to behold. Here is the heartbreaking particularity of nature, and the ravages of time made flesh. At once clinical and poignant, these photographs changed the way I look at the green world around me."-Michael Pollan, author of The Botany of Desire: A Plant''s-Eye View of the World

"Weird and wonderful." -- Adam Begley "New York Observer" (09/01/2008)

"Elegant. . . . A marvel." -- Tayt Harlin "New York Magazine" (09/09/2008)

"Breathtakingly seductive, Burdock is almost as much a journey of the soul as it is of the eyes. Though [Malcolm] leaves us with only a handful of images, they linger in the mind for hours after you''ve closed the book. Lovely."-Art Times
