The Ansel Adams of Angkor. . . . His pictures are not just beautiful but iconic. . . . dreamlike photos, which look as though they were taken in an ancient, forgotten world.” — The New York Times

Elegy: Reflections on Angkor

John McDermott's magical images let us enter an Angkor that is rapidly vanishing: the hidden realm of temples lost in the forest, a nineteenth century explorer's dream.

Created in a fourteen-year labor of love, Elegy is McDermott's magnum opus, a definitive collection of over 100 photographs. This exquisite book, with its lush images and subtle tonalities, was printed in Italy by Editoriale Bortolazzi Stei, one of the premier fine-art book printers in the world.

The book is hardbound with a chocolate brown silk cover, 256 pages, 30x30 cm, or approximately 12x12" (please note that the paper dustcover is available only on the Asian edition; the US edition is bound in dark brown silk). The retail price is $75.
