THE PUEBLO IMAGINATION: Landscape and Memory in the Photography of Lee Marmon

Lee Marmon, Author, Leslie Marmon Silko, Author, Joy Harjo, Author . Beacon $40 (0p) ISBN 978-0-8070-6614-0

Marmon, the father of novelist and essayist Leslie Marmon Silko (who provides an introduction), started snapping pictures in 1946 after an army stint. His images include desert landscapes, building interiors, portraits and candid shots of New Mexico's Laguna Pueblo people, lands and ceremonies. The photos are interspersed with short, prosaic recollections by writer Simon Ortiz, concerning boyhood on a land where dramatic red rock formations provide its limits. Similarly, Joy Harjo's poems, reprinted here from previous collections of her work, fittingly reflect the depth of Marmon's photos. (Oct.)
