Media reviews

"Recording those transitions between the unbuilt and the built, Brown has captured a series of alien and foreboding terrains that are stunningly beautiful in their stark austerity and esoteric geometries -- arid lands relentlessly scoured, scraped, modeled, and engineered in preparation for domestication. Even more unnerving are her photographs of the eventual consequences of those geometries -- the planned, repetitive, sterile, and seemingly endless tracts of suburban homes stretching to the horizon's haze, the expanse of the American dream taken to its end. One may wistfully cherish those operatic vistas of pristine wilderness photographed by the likes of Ansel Adams; Laurie Brown shows us what really exists just beyond the Half Dome." -- Robert A. Sobieszek, Curator of Photography & Deputy Director of Strategic Artistic Initiatives, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, reviewing a previous edition or volume
