    "Land_AA is an eleven volume set of artist books that explore the legacy and mythology of famed American photographer, Ansel Adams. AA developed an eleven step system of tones in black and white photography, commonly known as "the zone system," as a way to calculate and control light from its brightest burst to its darkest murmur. Our approach is to build a conceptual zone system which adds to and completes another sort of picture."--Publisher.; Land AA Vol. 3 (2015) is an "interpretation of various instructional photographs collected from numerous textbooks and instruction manuals published by Ansel Adams. Various images are re-enacted and/or appropriated to examine the processes and conventions of making technically-sound photographs"--Publisher. Includes one risograph printed bookmark. Project by Peter Happel Christian and Phillip Andrew Lewis, working together under the project name Clear As Day. Designed by Eva van der Schan and includes an original essay, "On How to Look" by Christina Schmid. Printed at Spinhex & Industrie in The Netherlands in an edition of 500.
