Author(s): Kelly Klein


"In her third book, editor and photographer Kelly Klein celebrates the myriad incarnations of the cross in photography of the past century. Here are images of the cross in both nature and the man-made world, in precious decorative objects and industrial architecture, in the shapes of the human body and the shapes of shadows. These pictures show how this most potent symbol can be transformed into the sacred, the ordinary, the profane, depending on its use and surroundings. This is the first book ever to distill the icon of the cross to its pure aesthetic essence, to explore its universal beauty."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
