(DAVIES, ROGER). Davies, Roger. New York: Monacelli Press, I0020221127. 2022. First Edition. 12 x 10 ½". Cloth in Pictorial Dust Jacket. Architectural Photography Monograph. New/New. 280pp, profusely illustrated in color. 9781580936057"For more than twenty years, globe-trotting English-born, Los Angeles-based photographer Roger Davies has shot stunning, luxurious, unique, and storied residences by the world’s most acclaimed designers and architects for the most prestigious magazines. In Beyond the Canyon, he trains his camera on residential interiors throughout the Golden State, his adopted home. Granted unparalleled access from Malibu to Marin County and Laurel Canyon to Hollywood, Davies takes readers into the often glamorous, always compelling homes of artists, film producers, actors, musicians, interior designers, art collectors, and others who lend the West Coast its cachet. Across the variety of spaces represented - including legacy works by mid-century masters John Lautner, A. Quincy Jones, and Craig Ellwood as well as contemporary designs by Tadao Ando and Frank Gehry, he captures the essence of California living in his portraits of spectacular spaces and breathtaking views of the Hollywood Hills and palm tree–lined beaches, all bathed in a warm glow. As one of the world’s top photographers of interiors, Davies’s work has appeared in numerous design and architecture books. In Beyond the Canyon, his first monograph, he provides in his own words a rare behind-the-scenes, industry insider’s experience of photographing these stunning residences. A brand new, most handsome example of this striking new publication.
