Since 1999--in the spirit of Land artists such as James Turrell and Michael Heizer--Australian sculptor Andrew Rogers has been working on "Geoglyphs, Rhythms of Life," a series of massive stone geoglyphs (large-scale works carved into or drawn on the ground) intended to form a chain across the globe, as well as to serve as a metaphor for the cycle of life. Additionally, Rogers uses these works as backdrops for photographs of nude and pregnant women in a related series, also presented here, called "Celebration of Life." The chain has thus far been completed in 12 locations across five continents with the assistance of 5,000 people. This exhaustive volume, featuring 1,436 reproductions, including aerial and satellite images, brims with on-site photographs recording Rogers' travels through a breathtaking array of landscapes, from the dizzying heights of the Bolivian Altiplano to the pristine serenity of Nepal's Himalayas.
