  • Artist's book by the photographer Alia Malley, in which she "explores the continuity between fact and fiction, history, and hoax. A convincing journey through deep space and across the stark terrain of distant planets, the images that comprise Captains read like media artifacts from an authentic space chronicle yet were primarily shot on location in desert settings of California and the Southwestern United States"--Statement from the blog Lens/cratch Fine Art Photography Daily; see post by Aline Smithson on Captains of the Dead Sea, dated October 26, 2015. Smithson continues, "By training her lens on topographical features in the landscape such as rock and crater formations that recall media images of the pockmarked surface of the moon or the rust colored valleys of Mars, Malley demonstrates how photographic images have been imprinted in our consciousness and have comprehensively altered the way we perceive and interpret the landscape around us."
