Product Details


“The book is a rich source of the kinds of things that make the state such an interesting place, and a look back at one of the most fertile times in its history, the 1980s.” —The Washington Post

“Benn paints a complex and surreal picture of his native state in the newly resurfaced project.”

“The issues and tensions in the over 100 images, whether ecological or political, are often still present, making A Peculiar Paradise a timely return to this decades-old work.” —Hyperallergic

“A cross-section of heady, South-Atlantic life emerges from this half-autobiography, half-ethnography as Benn assumes a naturalist’s eye and a Rockwell-esque predilection towards the range of human emotion that can be portrayed in a still image.” —Musée
