Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name at the John Hansard Gallery in Britain in 2000. Presents Richard Ross' "Gathering Light". The photographic medium as "the gathering of light". Ross shows this to moving effect in all of the photographs of museums, temples, ruins, and other places in this collection. Whether showing the beauty of natural light or the kaleidoscopic brilliance of artificial light, the collection continually stuns, moves, and gives deep pleasure. An absolute "must-have" title for Richard Ross collectors. This title is now collectible.
