LIMITED EDITION of 128 signed and numbered copies; this is number 21. "This book presents a digital version of a landscape photograph made near Caineville, Utah in 1989." David Wing designed and created the book at his Futura Press in San Diego in collaboration with Allwyn O'Mara, a fine art book binder. Wing is a notable photographer of the American West and the founder of the inaugural photography program at Grossmont College, where he taught for many years. The book's title, Axial Transformations, recalls the period from 800 to 200 BCE designated as the "Axial Age" or "the Great Transformation," in which humans developed the skills of self-reflection, awareness, and fully conscious self-understanding.
