Evocative photographs celebrating the rich culture and dramatic landscapes of the Laguna Pueblo, the native people of the U.S. Southwest. Lee Marmon is America's most renowned Native American photographer and yet this is the first book to showcase his breathtaking photography. This book combined Mr. Marmon's award-winning photographs celebrating the Laguna Pueblo - their distinctive landscapes, their traditions and history - with equally gorgeous prose and poetry by three of our most celebrated Native American writers: Lee's daughter, the novelist Leslie Marmon Silko, and the poets Joy Harpo and Simon Ortiz. With each flash of the camera, Lee Marmon captured a piece of Native American history; this book preserves that precious legacy. The Pueblo Imagination will be lavishly produced, with the highest quality reproductions, including some seventy black-and-white photos printed in duotone and eight pages of arresting color photographps. The text will flow in prose and verse from the images, setting the stage and capturing in words the history preserved in Lee Marmon's unforgettable images.
