Thomas Joshua Cooper: Shoshone Falls

2010
Hardback 48 pages
Publisher: Radius Books

Thomas Joshua Cooper is one of the most celebrated and distinctive landscape photographers working anywhere in the world today. He was born in California in 1946 but has lived in Scotland for many years. Cooper is the founding head of photography at Glasgow School of Art but spends much of his life seeking out the edges of the world. Like artists such as Richard Long, and Hamish Fulton, Cooper is a traveller, a nomadic artist whose extraordinary photographs are made in series at significant points around the globe, most often at its extremities.

 

This book, published in 2010, collects images from Cooper's 2003 trip to Shoshone falls in southern Idaho. Cooper's images are eloquently contextualised in an essay by Toby Jurovics, curator of photography at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
