Silver in Book/Nature
Outside. A twenty five year retrospective by fine-art landscape photographer David Magee. This book was to present an overview of his approach to landscape photography. One that mirrored his aesthetic of “feeling” being the most important emotion to be taken from his photographs. Outside, is designed as a gallery in itself, with forty-seven plates, accompanied by intimate anecdotes by the artist. Square in format, case bound in Japanese paper that resembles rock, featuring gold and translucent foiling, presented in a clam shell box. Each book numbered and signed by the artist.
