Adrian Gaut: Skeleton Coast (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


The Skeleton Coast in Namibia has long been synonymous with the untamed and the other-worldly. It exists vividly in the dreams of surfers, who lust after its perfect, empty waves, and in the nightmares of sailors, some of whom ran aground in this inhospitable expanse of shift-ing dunes only to find themselves terrifyingly isolated, scattered among the bleached whale bones and shipwrecks, all long ago picked clean. Sometimes referred to as the "Gates of Hell" by Portuguese explorers, the Skeleton Coast has to this day has resisted settlement-much less development-and it is precisely this desolation-the raw and primal quality of the landscape-that captivated photographer Adrian Gaut. In his second monograph, Gaut has cultivated a unique approach to making pictures of this expanse of rugged beauty. The pho-tographs in this book, often bordering on the abstract, have all been made while traveling in a small, single-prop airplane between Swakopmund and points south.

Adrian Gaut, born 1981 in Portland, Oregon, has spent his career photographing the intersection of nature and culture. In his nearly 20 years as an editorial photographer, he has traveled extensively, photographing projects in dozens of countries for publications such as The New York Times, Conde Nast Traveller, and Architectural Digest. His first monograph, published in 2017 and titled Wilshire Blvd, explored the mid-century architecture of an archetypical Los Angeles boulevard. He lives and works in New York City.
