Sacred Landscape

As long as there have been human beings, there have been sacred landscapes— places where the natural world compels us to contemplate great myths and mysteries and to open our senses to experience the transcendent. To behold or enter a sacred mountain, cave, waterfall, or other physical manifestation of the eternal is to symbolically cross a threshold from mundane, time-bound reality into something beyond our limited lives and intellects. This inspired and inspiring collaboration between photographer Lynn Davis and author A. T. Mann, covering thirty countries, examines not only the sacred landscapes of nature but the temples and other architectural structures our species has built over the millennia in our never-ending quest to nurture our spirits and gain access to the divine.
