Pond Press proudly announces the publication of MonoVisioN, acclaimed photographer Scott Frances’s long‐anticipated first monograph.
The book includes an introduction by renowned architect Richard Meier. In the preface to MonoVisioN, Meier states: "A Scott Frances photograph captures all these ephemeral elements that I have always explored in my architectural work. The images in this book portray the qualities that give every space and building a sense of place, and the constant dialogue between the man-made and the natural. MonoVisioN becomes an exploration of solid and void, transparency and opaqueness, the rational and the intuitive, and an essay on composition."
Renowned for his architecture and lifestyle photography, Scott is a frequent contributor to such illustrious magazines as Architectural Digest, Vanity Fair, New York Times Magazine, and Departures. Scott has worked with many of the world’s most famous architects and designers after beginning his career shooting for Richard Meier. He has photographed the homes of such celebrities as Jennifer Aniston, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Jim Belushi, Claire Danes, Clive Davis, Steve Jobs, Elton John, Cindy Crawford, Ted Turner and Jessica Lange.
Scott’s images reflect the synthesis of his interests in carefully balanced composition, using atmospheric and naturally motivated light. With a journalist’s need to tell a story simply, along with his passion for the decorative arts, his imagery bridges recurring themes throughout art history.
MonoVisoN first edition limited to 1,000 cloth cover edition.
